"Foundational Films is the first book in English to offer a comprehensive history of early cinema in Brazil. Conde masterfully combines close-reading of films with analyses of film reviews, cr�nicas, poetry, photographs, art works, and more, offering a broad view of how cinema as an art form and as new technology impacted on Brazilian cities and Brazilian society as a whole in the early twentieth century. This is an excellent and original book."--L�cia Sa, author of Life in the Megalopolis: Mexico City and Sao Paulo

"Foundational Films makes a very significant contribution to Brazilian and Latin American film scholarship. Conde provides a sophisticated theoretical framework for understanding the complex network of social and political forces in which cinema was introduced and thrived in Brazil in the silent period. This is the first book of its kind and will be an important resource for scholars and teachers alike."--Ana M. L�pez, coeditor of The Routledge Companion to Latin American Cinema
