Cinemachismo : masculinities and sexuality in Mexican film / Sergio de la Mora
Austin, Texas: University of Texas Press, 2006.
Call No: 744-01(72) MOR Author: Mora, Sergio de la Source: US Place: Austin, Texas Publisher: University of Texas Press PubDate: 2006 PhysDes: xix, 236 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm Subject: COMO AGUA PARA CHOCOLATE (MX, Alfonso Arau, 1992); DANZON (MX, Maria Novaro, 1991); INFANTE, PEDRO; MEXICO; PROSTITUTES IN FILMS; Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN (MX, Alfonso Cuaron, 2001) Summary: "After the modern Mexican state came into being following the Revolution of 1910, hyper-masculine machismo came to be a defining characteristic of "mexicanidad," or Mexican national identity. Virile men (pelados and charros), virtuous prostitutes as mother figures, and minstrel-like gay men were held out as desired and/ or abject models not only in governmental rhetoric and propaganda, but also in literature and popular culture, particularly in the cinema. Indeed, cinema provided an especially effective staging ground for the construction of a gendered and sexualized national identity. In this book, Sergio de la Mora offers the first extended analysis of how Mexican cinema has represented masculinities and sexualities and their relationship to national identity from 1950 to 2004. He focuses on three traditional genres (the revolutionary melodrama, the cabaretera [dancehall] prostitution melodrama, and the musical comedy "buddy movie") and one subgenre (the fichera brothel-cabaret comedy) of classic and contemporary cinema. By concentrating on the changing conventions of these genres, de la Mora reveals how Mexican films have both supported and subverted traditional heterosexual norms of Mexican national identity. In particular, his analyses of Mexican cinematic icons Pedro Infante and Gael Garciacute;a Bernal and of Arturo Ripstein's cult film El lugar sin liacute;mites illuminate cinema's role in fostering distinct figurations of masculinity, queer spectatorship, and gay male representations. De la Mora completes this exciting interdisciplinary study with an in-depth look at how the Mexican state brought about structural changes in the film industry between 1989 and 1994 through the work of the Mexican Film Institute (IMCINE), paving the way for a renaissance in the national cinema." - taken from back cover Notes: Includes bibliographical references (pages 197-226) and index -- Lambda Literary Awards (nominated), 2007. -- Formerly CIP.

To the five parts which trace the development of the genre from the 1920s Jacobs has added a new section of seven essays on the documentaries of the 1970s. The section is introduced by his own survey of the filmmaking of the period, "From Political Activism to Women's Consciousness," and accompanied by a selected list of documentaries of the 1970s together with photographs from a number of these films. The bibliography of works on documentary films and filmmakers has been expanded." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 577-579 ISBN: 0393950425 LON: 1437994 URL status: URL: 'http://-'

Each essay focuses on one or two important documentaries, engaging in questions surrounding ethics, ideology, politics, power, race, gender, and representation -- but always in terms of how they arise out of or are involved in the reading of specific documentaries as particular textual constructions. By closely reading documentaries as rich visual works, this anthology fills a void in the critical writing on documentaries, which tends to privilege production over aesthetic pleasure. As we perceive and comprehend the world through visual media increasingly, understanding the textual strategies by which individual documentaries are organized has become critically important. Together, the essays cover the significant developments in the history of the documentary, from the first commercially released feature, Nanook of the North (1922), to modern independent productions, such as An American Family (1973), Tongues Untied (1989), and Finding Christa (1991), and including important national and stylistic movements and various production contexts from the mainstream to the avant-garde. Seth Feldman places Dziga Vertov's Man with a Movie Camera (1929) within the context of constructivism and futurism; Vivian Sobchack discusses the strategies of Bunuel's Las Hurdas (Land without Bread, 1931) in relation to surrealism; and Joanne Hershfield explores Que viva Mexico! (1932) as the presentation of an exotic culture by a European director. Documenting the Documentary offers clear, serious, and insightful analyses of documentary films, and is a welcome balancebetween theory and criticism, abstract conceptualization and concrete analysis. --FROM PUBLISHER'S SITE Notes: includes bibliiographic references and index ISBN: 0814326390 Contents: Filmmaker as hunter / William Rothman -- Peace between man and machine / Seth Feldman -- Paradise regained / Joanne Hershfield -- Synthetic vision / Vivian Sobchack -- Art of national projection / William Guynn -- Mass psychology of fascist cinema / Frank P.

The book moves from broad historical and theoretical context, particularly theories of nation, emergent discourses of "mexicanidad" and the establishment and development of the Mexican industry, towards readings of key film texts and genres. Individual chapters discuss the relationship between Hollywood cinema and Mexican cinema, the stars of the "Golden Age," the role of foreign auteurs in the founding of Mexican cinema, tensions in the industry in the 1960s, and the national and international reception of contemporary films and film-makers. The author then examines the portrayal of Mexican nationhood through critical analysis of film genres including Revolutionary films, machismo and "mexicanidad," the prostitute, and the work of female auteurs.

Los olvidados / Mark Polizzotti
London: British Film Institute, 2006.
Call No: 79OLV POL Author: Polizzotti, Mark CorpAuthor: BFI Source: UK Place: London Publisher: British Film Institute PubDate: 2006 PhysDes: 87 p. : 19 cm Series: BFI Film Classics Subject: OLVIDADOS, LOS (MX, Luis Bunuel, 1951); BUNUEL, LUIS; MEXICO Summary: Los Olvidados (1950) established Luis Buñuel’s reputation as a world-class director. Set in the slums of Mexico City, it follows the crime-filled and violent lives of a group of juvenile delinquents. The film exhibits some of Buñuel’s trademark themes – unrequited love, social injustice and surrealism – but with a layer of compassion that sets it apart from many of his other films. In 2003, Los Olvidados was inducted into UNESCO’s Memory of the World programme, which preserves documentary heritage of world significance. Mark Polizzotti explores the historical context, aesthetic importance ad biographical significance of the film, providing the first complete overview of Los Olvidados in English. He also presents an introduction to the Mexican film industry and places Buñuel and his films within it. While many critics have taken Los Olvidados as a film about urban poverty, Mark Polizzotti sees it as a much more personal and mysterious statement about yearning, loss and the need for redemption. By taking the notion of hunger as its structural principle, he explores the themes of betrayal, desire and death that make the film such a powerful statement more than fifty years after its release.

Call No: 735.2 FIS Author: Fischer-Hornung, Dorothea; Mueller, Monika Edition: 2016 Place: Jackson Publisher: University Press of Mississippi PubDate: 2016 PhysDes: vi, 256 : illus. ; 24 cm Subject: VAMPIRE FILMS; ZOMBIES IN FILMS AND TV; MONSTERS IN FILMS; THAILAND; MEXICO; WORLD WAR Z (US/MT, Marc Forster, 2013); VAMPYR : DER TRAUM DES ALLEN GRAY (G/FR, Carl Th. Dreyer, 1932); VAMPIRO, EL (MX, Paul Nagle, 1959) Notes: The undead are very much alive in contemporary entertainment and lore. Indeed, vampires and zombies have garnered attention in print media, cinema, and on television. The vampire, with roots in medieval European folklore, and the zombie, with origins in Afro-Caribbean mythology, have both undergone significant transformations in global culture, proliferating as deviant representatives of the zeitgeist.
As this volume demonstrates, distribution of vampires and zombies across time and space has revealed these undead figures to carry multiple meanings. Of all monsters, vampires and zombies seem to be the most trendy--the most regularly incarnate of the undead and the monsters most frequently represented in the media and pop culture. Moreover, both figures have experienced radical reinterpretations. If in the past vampires were evil, blood-sucking exploiters and zombies were brainless victims, they now have metamorphosed into kinder and gentler blood-sucking vampires and crueler, more relentless, flesh-eating zombies. Although the portrayals of both vampires and zombies can be traced back to specific regions and predate mass media, the introduction of mass distribution through film and game technologies has significantly modified their depiction over time and in new environments. Among other topics, contributors discuss zombies in Thai films, vampire novels of Mexico, and undead avatars in horror videogames. This volume--with scholars from different national and cultural backgrounds--explores the transformations that the vampire and zombie figures undergo when they travel globally and through various media and cultures.
