This book is part of the "Directory of World Cinema" series. It includes contributions from some of the leading academics and emerging young scholars in the field. It features reviews of important recent films and film recommendations from a range of genres for those interested in watching more Latin American cinema. It features full colour illustrations. It features comprehensive filmography as an index. From the interior drama of Lucrecia Martel's "The Headless Woman" to the frightful fantasy of Guillermo del Toro's "Pan's Labyrinth" and "Hellboy" movies, Latin American cinema covers a vast landscape not only in terms of geography but also in terms of its genres and concerns. The "Directory of World Cinema: Latin America" offers a comprehensive overview of the region's diverse films. The volume opens with a section that spotlights key elements in the world of contemporary Latin American cinema, including film festivals, cross-cultural collaboration, and computer-generated animation. Another group of contributions explores key genres - such as documentary, drama, romance, thriller, horror, and women's cinema - and parses their portrayals of Latin American societies. A section on directors offers in-depth analyses of fascinating filmmakers, delving into such topics as their production methodologies, thematic concerns, and cinematic legacies. With a historical scope that ranges from the era of silent movies to the present and geographical coverage that extends from Cuba to Mexico to Venezuela, the "Directory of World Cinema: Latin America" will be an indispensable resource for anyone interested in this dynamic region of the moviemaking world.
