Global Mexican Cinema - Softcover


“Age is something that doesn't matter unless you are a cheese.” - Luis Buñuel

  • The golden age of Mexican cinema, which spanned the 1930s through to the 1950s, saw Mexico's film industry become one of the most productive in the world, exercising a decisive influence on national culture and identity.
  • In the first major study of the global reception and impact of Mexican Golden Age cinema, this book captures the key aspects of its international success, from its role in forming a nostalgic cultural landscape for Mexican emigrants working in the United States, to its economic and cultural influence on Latin America, Spain and Yugoslavia. 
  • Challenging existing perceptions, the authors reveal how its film industry helped establish Mexico as a long-standing centre of cultural influence for the Spanish-speaking world and beyond.
