“This is a key reference text that should have a prominent place in the library of anyone interested in Latin American Cinema. Highly synthetic essays dedicated to individual films carefully situate each work in both historical and cinematic terms. In the best of cases, this method models an alternative writing of national film history through individual essays on outstanding films contextualised within their maker’s career and the contemporaneous profile of national film culture. An ambitious and valuable volume”.
—Julianne Burton-Carvajal, University of California at Santa Cruz
