We invite your participation in a symposium at UCLA designed to discuss and debate a diversity of approaches to the topic of Latin American cinema studies today. Latin American cinema studies have grown enormously in volume and quality the last few years. The field has produced conferences, essays and books, and specialized study groups dedicated to research in Latin American cinematographic representations. From comparative to national cinematography studies, from the studies of cinematographic to the gendered genres, from formal studies to historical ones, from theoretical studies to explorations of film distribution markets, among other areas of concentration, Latin American cinema is now debated widely around the world.
