Latin American Women Filmmakers: Production, Politics, Poetics

Deborah Martin (Editor), Deborah Shaw (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


In recent years, women have become prominent on the Latin American filmmaking scene, with exciting and challenging films that are achieving domestic and global prominence. Latin American Women Filmmakers: Production, Politics, Poetics examines this emergence of a body of internationally distributed films by Latin American women, and the national cinematic histories and international production contexts within which this work has arisen. Bringing together distinguished scholars of Latin American cinema, this book features exciting research on established and emerging directors – including Lucrecia Martel, Claudia Llosa and Lucía Puenzo – as well as a focus on influential female producer-auteurs, and sets these key agents and contemporary developments in historical context.
