*/Secuencias /*launches a new issue composed of five articles, as well as book and DVD reviews. There is also an editorial text *in memory of José Luis Martínez Montalbán*, our journal’s first Editorial Chief, who passed away on 4^th November 2016.

The firstarticle, *‘C**o**mprehensive, Fruitless, Possessive, Inept Ones: Figures of the Mother in the Cinema of John Ford’*written by Nekane E. Zubiaur Gorozika, offers a classification of the diverse figures of the mother in John Ford’s cinema, focusing on their behaviour at the moment of the separation from their son.

Román Setton’s contribution, *‘Manuel Romero’s Early Crime Films and their Relation with Previous Crime Representation in the Argentine Cinema’*,**fills a gap in the academic publications about Argentinian crime film history analizying Romero’s three early crime films: /Noches de Buenos Aires/ (1935), /El caballo del pueblo/ (1935) and /La vuelta de Rocha/ (1937).

In the following article,*‘Between Religious Belief and Political Will: A Comparative Study of the Films /Todo es ausencia/ (1984), by Rodolfo Kuhn, and /En nombre de Dios/ (1987), by Patricio Guzmán’*,**Paola Margulis analyzes comparatively both Latin American documentaries about the relation between the Catholic Church and the dictatorial past of Argentina and Chile.

María Lorenzo Hernández´s *‘Robin Wright Reloaded. Nostalgia as Narrative Device in Ari Folman’s /The Congress /(2013)’ *relates Folman’s dystopian film with Morin and Dovjenko’s speculative theories of /total film/; Genette and Feyersinger’s /metalepsis/ concept; and Burch’s idea of the film as a /Frankesteinian/ /medium/, among others.

Lourdes Monterrubio Ibáñez writes *‘/Colossal Youth/ (2006), by Pedro Costa. **The Denied Letter, Speech, Memory and Resistance’ *where she studies the presence of the epistolary device on Costa’s film as a resistance act by means of speech and memory, against the marginalization and exclusion suffered by immigrants.
