About this item

Some of the Latin American women movie directors the author examines challenge societal norms such as heteronormativity, ethnocentricity, sexism, and socioeconomic discrimination, says Roberts-Camps, while others defy patriarchal society, repressive governments, and the Catholic Church. For some of the earlier directors, the challenge was to break into a completely male-dominated field and defy traditional family expectations, while for newer directors is has been to broaden the scope of the cinematic examination of race and ethnicity and critique of sex and gender binaries. She looks at documentary films and at feature-length fictional films including melodrama, tragedy, and historical drama. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
