Avances de Hollywood: critica cinematografica lat., 1915-1945Avances de Hollywood: Crítica cinematográfica lat., 1915-1945

Para los intelectuales latinoamericanos de las décadas de 1920 y 1930, gran parte de ellos enloquecidos por el cine y al mismo tiempo profundamente amenazados por los Estados Unidos y lo que se percibe como la vulgarización de la cultura en general, Hollywood constituye un signo sumamente problemático que se pretende resolver por los varios modismos de la escritura.

Latin American Writers and the Rise of Hollywood Cinema Latin American Writers and the Rise of Hollywood Cinema

This book analyzes the initial engagement with Hollywood by key Latin American writers and intellectuals during the first few decades of the 20th century. The film metropolis presented an ambiguous, multivalent sign for established figures like Horacio Quiroga, Alejo Carpentier and Mário de Andrade, as well as less renowned writers like the Mexican Carlos Noriega Hope, the Chilean Vera Zouroff and the Cuban Guillermo Villarronda.
