MEDIA REVIEWS

"Individually these theoretically informed essays explore the unique ways in which Latin American films and theorists have engaged with documentary versus fiction debates. Taken as a whole, the essays manage to illuminate textual nuances within precise contexts spanning more than a half a century. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and faculty." - Choice

"Visual Synergies is an excellent collection on a vital topic. It brings together some of the most distinguished scholars working in the field and covers an admirably wide range of films." - Paul Julian Smith, FBA, Professor of Spanish, University of Cambridge

"This is the first edited volume with a focus on both fiction and documentary filmmaking in Latin America. Well focused and highly pertinent to the field, Haddu and Page's collection fills the void in this important yet neglected area in Latin American film studies. This book will be of value to scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates in Film Studies and Latin American Studies." - Deborah Shaw, Reader in Film Studies, Portsmouth University

"The contributors to thsi volume address the intersection of elements and issues associated with both modes of expression. Individually these theoretically informed essays explore the unique ways in which Latin American films and theorists have engaged with documentary versus fiction debates. Taken as a whole, the essays manage to illuminate textual nuances within precise contexts spanning more than half a century." - A.M. Stock, Choice
