The latin american cinema

The concept of a New Latin American Cinema, that breaks from European rules, appears at the end of the 1960’s (not to mix with Left Cinema). This trend was institutionalized with the creation of the Havana Festival, in 1979, just when it started to go back to more classic forms. The three main film-producing countries are Mexico, Brazil and Argentina. Other countries such as Cuba, Bolivia and Chile ended up joining the trend and were well-received. The attempt to revolutionize the autonomous forms of the cinema was created as a contribution to the social and political revolution, claimed by the former latin-american liberation movements.
