This engaging book explores Latin America cinema since 2000, an extraordinary period of international recognition. Leading specialists consider the reasons for the unprecedented commercial and critical successes of movies such as City of God, The Motorcycle Diaries, Y tu mama tambien, and Nine Queens, as well as equally important films that failed to break out on the international circuit. The chapters not only offer textual analysis, but also assess the films' social context and production conditions. Their well-rounded analyses offer a rich picture of the state of contemporary filmmaking in a range of Latin American countries. Nuanced and thought-provoking, the readings in this book will provide invaluable interpretations for students and scholars of Latin American film.

Review:

With an eye to the national and international contexts of production and reception of contemporary Latin American cinema, essays in this exciting collection focus on international blockbusters as well as introduce readers to lesser known films. A welcome and valuable addition to the growing scholarship on the cinemas of the region.--Andrea Noble, Durham University

Again and again, these essays strip away the masks to reveal Latin American cinema as it really is: specific and local, national and historical, not a homogeneous product lately discovered by the United States and Europe as a marketable commodity. A valuable compendium for anyone who wants to know what's up with cinema in Latin America today.--B. Ruby Rich, University of California, Santa Cruz; author of Chick Flicks: Theories and Memories of the Feminist Film Movement

Recommended.--CHOICE

The great merit of this book is to acknowledge current Latin American cinema's international success as an aesthetic achievement, as well as a commercial one. Through in-depth case studies, it contributes a fascinating new chapter to world cinema history.--Lúcia Nagib, University of Reading
