Argentina boasts one of the most popular, diverse and successful film industries in Latin America. From early films about gauchos and the tango to human rights dramas and groundbreaking experimental documentaries, Argentina’s cinematic output has achieved both global influence and international acclaim.
A discriminating survey of the country’s key films, Directory of World Cinema: Argentina contains provocative essays and astute reviews by scholars, critics, film-makers and film buffs. Chapters spotlight, among other subjects, the Buenos Aires film festival and the legacy of such iconic directors as María Luisa Bemberg and Pablo Trapero. Film reviews examine a cross-section of Argentine cinema, providing critical analysis of everything from contemporary blockbusters to hidden gems. Featuring full-colour stills, interviews, references and trivia, this book is an invaluable resource for readers interested in the fascinating world of Argentine film.
'This directory is an excellent vade mecum for both academics and film buffs.  Meaty essays provide provocative commentaries on cinematic history, sociopolitical background, sex and gender, crime, dictatorship, and modern families; zero in on the documentary genre; and explore the experimental. ' – K. M. Sibbald, McGill University
