Nonfiction cinema in Latin America has undergone remarkable changes in the last thirty years. Documentary film was part of the ambitious movements that helped shape the region's cinematic landscape half a century ago, and it has for many years influenced socially committed filmmaking worldwide. The past three decades have taken this tradition in new directions. In this volume, contributors highlight the significance of recent Latin American documentaries and explore contrasts and parallels with works made in previous decades. Examining the vast breadth and diversity of contemporary documentary production, while also situating nonfiction film and video within the cultural, political, and socio-economic history of the region, this book addresses topics such as documentary aesthetics, indigenous media, and transnational filmmaking.
