About this product
- DescriptionMexican cinema is booming today, a decade after the international successes of Amores perros and Y tu mama tambien. Mexican films w display a wider range than any comparable country, from art films to popular genre movies, and boasting internationally rewned directors like Alfonso Cuaron, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, and Guillermo del Toro. At the same time, television has broadened its output, moving beyond televelas to produce higher-value series and mini-series. Mexican TV w stakes a claim to being the most dynamic and pervasive national narrative. This new book by Paul Julian Smith is the first to examine the flourishing of audiovisual fiction in Mexico since 2000, considering cinema and TV together. It covers much material previously unexplored and engages with emerging themes, including violence, youth culture, and film festivals. The book includes reviews of ten films released between 2001 and 2012 by directors who are both established (Maryse Sistach, Carlos Reygadas) and new (Jorge Michel Grau, Michael Rowe, Paula Markovitch). There is also an appendix that includes interviews carried out by the author in 2012 with five audiovisual professionals: a feature director, a festival director, an exhibitor, a producer, and a TV screenwriter. Mexican Screen Fiction will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars and essential reading for anyone interested in one of the most vibrant audiovisual industries in the world today.
