Between Cinema and Television

Mexican cinema is booming today, a decade after the international
successes of Amores perros and Y tu mamá también. Mexican
films now display a wider range than any comparable country, from
art films to popular genre movies, and boasting internationally
renowned directors like Alfonso Cuarón, Alejandro
González Iñárritu, and Guillermo del Toro. At the
same time, television has broadened its output, moving beyond
telenovelas to produce higher-value series and mini-series. Mexican
TV now stakes a claim to being the most dynamic and pervasive
national narrative.



This new book by Paul Julian Smith is the first to examine the
flourishing of audiovisual fiction in Mexico since 2000,
considering cinema and TV together. It covers much material
previously unexplored and engages with emerging themes, including
violence, youth culture, and film festivals. The book includes
reviews of ten films released between 2001 and 2012 by directors
who are both established (Maryse Sistach, Carlos Reygadas) and new
(Jorge Michel Grau, Michael Rowe, Paula Markovitch). There is also
an appendix that includes interviews carried out by the author in
2012 with five audiovisual professionals: a feature director, a
festival director, an exhibitor, a producer, and a TV
screenwriter.



Mexican Screen Fiction will be an invaluable resource for
students and scholars and essential reading for anyone interested
in one of the most vibrant audiovisual industries in the world
today.
