"An authoritative analysis of some 50 years of Argentine filmmaking in its determinant political contexts."
—Hispanic American Historical Review
"Jessica Stites Mor offers a welcome revision of Argentine political film of the last four decades that challenges classical approaches to both the history of Argentine cinema and the cinema of the Argentine transition....[she] offers an original and insightful resource to both scholars and a general audience who wish to better understand the unique case of the revival of contemporary Argentine political film."
—Canadian Journal of Latin American and Canadian Studies
This well-researched analysis of the past 50 years of Argentine cinema is unique in its emphasis on documentary film as well as feature film . . . an eye-opening perspective on the recent history of one of the world’s most important film producers. Highly recommended.”
[Stites Mor's] thorough inquiry into the role of film clubs, film collectives, government institutions, and cinema laws is innovative and interesting; the extensive filmography, selected bibliography, list of archival sources, periodicals, and film publications, will be extremely valuable to Latin American historians and film scholars wishing to delve further into a topic that has yet to yield many more in-depth analyses and critical reevaluations.”
