About the Book

Originally issued in hardcover in 1996 by Garland Publishing, this important reference work is now available in paperback for a wider audience. A distinguished team of contributors has compiled entries on 140 significant South American feature films from the silent era until 1994. The entries discuss each film's subject matter, critical reception, and social and political contexts, as well as its production, distribution, and exhibition history, including technical credits. The entries are grouped by country and arranged chronologically. Both fiction and documentary films (some no longer in existence) are included, as well as extensive title, name, and subject indexes and glossaries of film and foreign terms.

About the Author: Timothy Barnard is a writer and translator who has written on Latin American, French, and early cinema. He is pursuing a Ph.D. in comparative literature at the University of Chicago. Peter Rist is Chair of the Department of Cinema at Concordia University
