Other Worlds: New Argentine Film

Aguilar, Gonzalo

Includes examination of certain works of Argentine cinema in the 2000s in relation to the notion of modern political, or minor cinema, as developed by Deleuze in Cinema 2.

Other Worlds is the most complete text to be published on the new Argentine cinema. While anchored in critical discourse and written by an academic, it also has the virtue of using clear and accessible language. In addition, the book is more than a study of cinema; in its pages, the author reflects upon the recent crisis in Argentina. In the words of Argentine critic Diego Trerotola, “the trajectory of this essay forms a vivid map of over ten years of innovation, in order to understand the aesthetic work of our national cinema.”
