A New Challenge: Take on the Pillars of Latin American Cinema

Now that I have gone through 2 or 3 major films from each country, I want to look at what historians have deemed to be the most important and best films made in Latin America. I have compiled this list from a few major Latin American film historians in the hopes of better understanding not just the history but the greats of Latin American film.

For this challenge I also have a few ground rules.

  1. I can’t include any movies I’ve already seen. That means unfortunately movies like Water for Chocolate or City of God are going out with the bathwater.
  2. I am going in chronological order so be patient with the old fashioned movies at the beginning
  3. There will be one analysis (and translation) a week

It’s going to be a big undertaking but I’m ready for the challenge. If anybody has any suggestions or actually ends up reading this blog, I’d be happy to hear it. Hopefully by the time I finish this, I will have learned a lot about Latin America and connected with new people!
