Latin American Documentary Filmmaking: Major Works (Paperback)David William Foster (author)
- We can order this
Foster provides a series of detailed examinations of major texts of Latin American filmmaking, discussing their textual production and processes of meaning. His analysis delves deeply into the world of Latin American film and brings forth a discourse of structure that has previously been absent from the fields of filmmaking and Latin American studies. This volume provides perspective on diverse and methodological approaches, pulling from a wide scope of cinematic traditions. Using his own critical readings and research, Foster presents his findings in terms that are accessible to non-Spanish speakers and Latin American film enthusiasts.
A much-needed contribution to the field of Latin American documentary film, Foster's research and perspective will be a valuable source for those interested in film studies, gender studies, and culture.

"Foster's illuminating and sensitive analysis of Latin American documentary films is clearly based on extensive reading and a solid critical base. It stages the workings of a sharp, critical mind, thoroughly familiar with the critical debates on Latin American film and culture." --Santiago Juan-Navarro, co-editor of Nuevas aproximaciones al cine hisp nico: Migraciones temporales, textuales y tnicas en el bicentenario de las independencias iberoamericanas (1810-2010)
