Cosmopolitan Film Cultures in Latin America, 1896-1960

Cosmopolitan Film Cultures in Latin America examines how cinema forged cultural connections between Latin American publics and film-exporting nations in the first half of the twentieth century. Predating today's transnational media industries by several decades, these connections were defined by active economic and cultural exchanges, as well as longstanding inequalities in political power and cultural capital. The essays explore the arrival and expansion of cinema throughout the region, from the first screenings of the Lumière Cinématographe in 1896 to the emergence of new forms of cinephilia and cult spectatorship in the 1940s and beyond. Examining these transnational exchanges through the lens of the cosmopolitan, which emphasizes the ethical and political dimensions of cultural consumption, illuminates the role played by moving images in negotiating between the local, national, and global, and between the popular and the elite in twentieth-century Latin America. In addition, primary historical documents provide vivid accounts of Latin American film critics, movie audiences, and film industry workers' experiences with moving images produced elsewhere, encounters that were deeply rooted in the local context, yet also opened out onto global horizons.

Reviews

"...an indispensable and timely work of historiography."—Zuzana Pick, author of The New Latin American Cinema: A Continental Project

"Cosmopolitan Film Cultures is a timely revision of current debates in theeld of Film Studies. It offers a new understanding of moving images in Latin America as the result of negotiations of national agendas, cosmopolitan impulses and transnationalows of cultural commodities and capital."—Bulletin of Spanish Visual Studies
