Thu Nov 07 19:26:27 GMT 2013

Studies in Spanish & Latin American Cinemas issue 10.1

Intellect is delighted to announce the publication of Studies in Spanish & Latin American Cinemas, volume 10 issue 1. Formerly published as Studies in Hispanic Cinemas, this first issue since the journal's title change reflects the breadth of the journal's coverage. Thus, the issue includes articles and reviews that examine a range of films from Spanish, Brazilian, Cuban, Argentine and Mexican cinemas.

Maite Conde reveals how a new generation of female stars in 1920s Brazilian cinema together with women's consumer culture played a role in forging the Brazilian film industry. Thomas Deveny considers how communication facilitates character change in the Argentine film Un cuento chino, while Marilyn G Miller examines problems with 'truth' in the depiction of Caribbean slavery in both Cuban director Gutiérrez Alea's film The Last Supper, and in Italian director Pontecorvo's Burn! Similarly, the three book reviews assess titles that explore films from Mexican, Uruguayan, Peruvian, Argentine and Brazilian cinemas.

Four articles explore Spanish cinema of the Franco era. Alberto Medina investigates the Francoist politics of New Spanish Cinema of the 1970s, while Asier Aranzubia analyzes Carlos Serrano de Osma's last film, La rosa roja/The Red Rose from a historical and textual perspective, and Patricia Keller looks at cinematic time and depictions of loss in Carlos Saura's Elisa, vida mía. Finally, Erin K. Hogan sees Lucia's Tómbola as a vehicle for the political appropriation of children during Franco's regime, epitomized both in its storyline, which shows the wayward central child character being 'corrected' and converted to a model Francoist child, and through the treatment of Pepa Flores, the child star who played her, who was likewise forced into the role of model child for the regime.
