Overview

For decades, Latin American independent and national film and video makers have been creating innovative and authentic works about their own realities. Yet most of this work is never seen in the U.S. This unique directory helps educators, media users, and researchers locate over 400 films and videos made by Latin American and Latino film/video makers that are available in the United States. It provides descriptions of these works from a U.S. user's point of view. Professors from varied disciplines, including anthropology, political science, and Spanish and Portuguese language and literature, as well as film/video curators volunteered to evaluate these works. Their reviews provide important information about how to introduce these materials to U.S. audiences, and suggestions for how to use them in diverse core curricula. The film/video titles are indexed by subject, original title and English title for easy access, and a distributor's index provides contact information for purchasing and renting works.
