In Jose Sanchez-H. excellent book, The Art and Politics of Bolivian Cinema, American filmmakers are enlightened to the economic and political realities of making movies in a world not too far removed from those in North America. The book astutely brings the reader forward through a progression of various cinemamatic productions as it emerged throughout the 20th century in Bolivia. This well organized text leaves the reader with profound insights into the parallels of Amrerican politics and the course of making films in our own country, if one reads between the lines.Was this review helpful?
