In the late 1990s and early 2000s Latin American films like Amores perros, Y tu mama tambien and Cidade de Deus enjoyed an unprecedented level of critical and commercial success in the world market. Benefitting from external financial and/or creative input, these films were considered examples of transnational cinema. Through a textual analysis of six filmmakers (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro, Fernando Meirelles, Walter Salles and Juan Jose Campanella), this book examines these transnational films and the subsequent wave of commercially successful 'deterritorialised' films by the same directors. It argues that although films produced within the structures of the United States film industry may have been commercially successful, they are not necessarily apolitical or totally divorced from key notions of national or continental identity. Bringing a new perspective to the films of Latin America's transnational auteurs, this is a major contribution towards understanding how different genres function across different cultures.
