"This is a collection of very insightful, well-informed, and compelling analyses authored by leading scholars in the field of Latin American documentary filmmaking. Theoretically engaged with rigorous contextualization, New Documentaries in Latin America provides an important contribution to a growing field within Latin American Film Studies." - Miriam Haddu, Senior Lecturer, Mexican Visual Culture, University of London, UK, and author of Contemporary Mexican Cinema, 1989-1999: History, Space, and Identity

"Compelling and far-reaching, New Documentaries in Latin America provides a much-needed examination of the astounding documentary output of Latin America in the past three decades. The volume's wide-ranging essays offer nuanced perspectives on important and innovative documentary makers in the region that include established filmmakers like Patricio Guzman and Eduardo Coutinho; lesser-knowns like Karen Rossi and Susana Barriga; and media collectives like Chile's Camara en Mano and Mexico's Mal de Ojo TV. The breadth of practices covered invites an updating of previous histories of documentary in Latin America and expands our understanding of the use of video by activist and community organizations, indigenous groups, and regionally focused production arrangements." - Cristina Venegas, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA
