Overview

Latino American Cinema: An Encyclopedia of Movies, Stars, Concepts, and Trends serves as an essential primary reference for students of the topic as well as an accessible resource for general readers. The alphabetized entries in the volume cover the key topics of this provocative and complex genre€”films, filmmakers, star performers, concepts, and historical and burgeoning trends€”alongside frequently overlooked and crucially ignored items of interest in Latino cinema. This comprehensive treatment bridges gaps between traditional approaches to U.S.-Latino and Latin American cinemas, placing subjects of Chicana and Chicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban and diasporic Cuban, and Mexican origin in perspective with related Central and South American and Caribbean elements. Many of the entries offer compact definitions, critical discussions, overviews, and analyses of star artists, media productions, and historical moments, while several foundational entries explicate concepts, making this single volume encyclopedia a critical guide as well.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Baugh (film & media studies, Texas Tech Univ.) has compiled an essential scholarly tool for Latino American film and culture studies. . . . This solid resource fills a critical gap in Latino studies reference material."

-

Library Journal

"The resource guide section is particularly well structured, with a list of relevant online academic and commercial resources; Latino research centers in the US, the Caribbean, and South America; and media distributors that handle Latino cinema. College, university, and public libraries serving Latino populations will benefit from this book. Summing Up: Recommended."

Library Journal
Expanding upon documentaries such as Nancy De Los Santos's The Bronze Screen (2002) and foundational reference guides such as Gary D. Keller's Hispanics and United States Film (1994), Baugh (film & media studies, Texas Tech Univ.) has compiled an essential scholarly tool for Latino American film and culture studies. Alphabetically arranged entries cover stars, directors, significant production figures, and feature films. The entries, which rightly focus on professional credits rather than personal lives, offer brief, objective analyses of career credits. Black-and-white film stills and publicity portraits are often too few; additional images would have helped elevate identification of under-recognized figures. VERDICT Despite a slight dearth of images, this solid resource fills a critical gap in Latino studies reference material.
