Volume 15: Framing Latin American Cinema

Ed. Ann Marie Stock
Focuses on the critical constructions of Latin American Cinema, and the challenges those practices that reduce Latin American films to illustrations of U.S. and European film and cultural studies theories. It also provides insights into film industries in Cuba, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil, and Venezuela.
