Themes – Countries – Directors – Reviews
This volume about the socio-critical and -political aspects in Latin American Cinema(s) is the result of the commitment of a number of different contributors. The backgrounds and approaches of the writers are quite diverse, as one can see in the articles and reviews. The overall aim is mainly to offer a short insight into Latin American sociocultural life and history as expressed through the medium of film. Therefore, I am most grateful to all contributors for embracing this as- signment and fully engaging with Latin American cinema(s) through their pre- ferred method of analysis and subjective views. Special attention lies on “Socio- political Cinema”, “Film and History”, “Guerilla Filmmaking”, “Indigenous Ci- nema and on a selected number of the countries, directors and movies of Latin America with focus on social issues. Socio-critical Aspects in Latin American Cinema(s) would also not have been possible without the proof-reading of Frederic Bartlett, Anthony Santoro and in particular Annika Klein with her meticulous and professional care. Thank you! Finally thank you very much to everyone who has contributed to this volume, especially to my dear colleagues Maribel Cedeño, Uta Felten, Christian von Tschilschke and to film enthusiast Isabella Dumancic.
