9780822954194: The Social Documentary in Latin America (Pitt Latin American Series)

Twenty essays by major filmmakers and critics provide the first survey of the evolution of documentary film in Latin America. While acknowledging the political and historical weight of the documentary, the contributors are also concerned with the aesthetic dimensions of the medium and how Latin American practitioners have defined the boundaries of the form.

About the Author:

Julianne Burton-Carvajal is professor of literature at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Review:

“While clearly useful to Latin American film specialists, readers with other interests-in documentary filmmaking, in the socio-political forces shaping Latin America, in the nexus of cultural expression and social transformation-will also welcome The Social Documentary.
—Film Criticism

The Social Documentary in Latin America is a major work that brings together twenty generally high-quality essays on social and political documentaries filmed in Latin America in the 1950s-1980s.”
—Inter-American Review of Bibliography

“A collection of some twenty essays on this particular genre of film-making which, despite having been an integral part of Latin American cinema since the 1950s, has been surprisingly little-profiled in critical publications. . . . Meticulous and scholarly throughout, yet wide-ranging thematically, this is a pioneering, seminal work which should be essential reading for all students of Latin American cinema.”
—British Bulletin of Publications
