Latin American Cinemas Today: Reframing the National

Friday - Saturday 24-25 February 2012

This Symposium sets out to interrogate the relationships, dependencies and 
tensions between the transnational, national, regional and local in Hispanic 
cinemas. To date, many of the debate on this topic have focused on the 
mechanisms of cultural production and reception for contemporary Latin 
American film, examining the structures and impact of transnational funding 
schemes, while also taking into account the value of funding and 
distribution opportunities offered by schemes established by European 

At this event, we specifically ask:

- How do the mechanisms of transnational co-production and distribution 
affect the selection of stories that are told about Latin America?

- How, in turn, does that affect audience understanding of the development 
of individual nations and their cultures?

- How are we encouraged to ‘imagine’ the region? Should we even speak of a 
Latin American cinema?

- Does the neo-colonial gaze persist? Has it emerged in new forms?

- To what extent are we still unaware of the variety of films that are being 
produced in and about Latin America?

The event will conclude with a screening of a selection of films from the 
initiative established by the Festival of San Sebastián to support the 
development of Hispanic cinema: Cine en Construcción.
