In Bolivia, politics have always shaped art, particularly when it comes to film. This book presents Bolivia's most significant filmmakers largely in their own words. Since 1981, Jose Sanchez-H. has personally interviewed most of the filmmakers featured and has consistently maintained a commitment to rigorous scholarship and attention to new developments. One of the first studies in English on Bolivian cinema, this work provides the non-Bolivian with important information about Bolivian cinema and its cultural and political context. The chapters flow from a broad profile of the country and its history through a chronological presentation of the history of Bolivian cinema to careful treatments of important films, filmmakers, and periods in Bolivian film history. Filmmakers treated include Antonio Eguino, Jorge Sanjines, Jorge Ruiz, Marcos Loayza, Paolo Agazzi, and Oscar Soria. Sanchez-H. includes information about every aspect of the cinema including the music. Appendixes include a chronology of the films and political events, a list of awards won by Bolivian films, and useful addresses.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Detailed information, not available elsewhere in English, fills the book, making it a major resource... * Film Quarterly *
...a very comprehensive history based not only on sound research, but also on interviews with Bolivia's most significant filmmakers...a very valuable tool for students and scholars of film and Latin American culture. * British Bulletin of Publications on Latin America, the Caribbean, Portugal and Spain *
...includes much accurate and relevant information... * CHOICE *
This text is a must for any comprehensive research library, given its primary interviews with key filmmakers and that it is the only book in English that focuses exclusively on Bolivian film. * Communication Booknotes Quarterly *
...this book provides a comprehensive record of Bolivian films and filmmakers, including extensive interviews with major figures in the Bolivian film industry....Sanchez-H. is passionate about Bolivian cinema and exudes an almost missionary zeal in talking about his topic, convincing this reader that it would be worth the extra effort to get hold of some good Bolivian films. * Film Criticism *
...a valuable contribution to the still slim bibliography on Bolivian Cinema...a vivid and total mosaic of the history of Bolivian Cinema. -- From the introduction by Jorge Ruiz, Bolivian Filmmaker
