Synopsis: During the past twenty years, Latin American cinema has experienced an enormous upsurge, prompting film critics and scholars to hail the onset of a new era. What this signals, more than thriving financial or production infrastructures, is a renovated cinematic vision connected more closely to everyday experience and social and cultural concerns. The films analyzed in this new collection reflect and examine contemporary lives in their diversity and singularity, through their focus on identity politics, sexuality, the body, the family, and/or community.      Drawing especially on Jean-Luc Nancy?s notion of ?inoperative community? and Enrique Dussel?s critique of ?modernity,? these eleven essays weave together a progression that stresses the breakdown of the nation-state in Latin America and the search for new communal settings.
