Alborada presents: Adam Feinstein on Latin American Cinema

23 September 2017


Start 14.40

Sat 23 September

In this fascinating presentation, Adam Feinstein - Pablo Neruda's acclaimed biographer and an authority on Latin American cinema (he was an adviser on Pablo Larraín's new film, 'Neruda') - will whisk the audience through the past fifty glorious years of some of that region's ground-breaking films, showing numerous entertaining and illuminating clips to demonstrate common themes and use of camera techniques, montage and inventively playful narratives and sharing anecdotes from Adam's conversations with many of the movie-makers involved.

He will start in the 1960s and 1970s, with the influential cinema of Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, Julio García Espinosa, Humberto Solás and Santiago Álvarez in Cuba; Patricio Guzmán, Miguel Littín and Raúl Ruiz in Chile; and others.

Adam will then look at some of the key directors who emerged in the 1980s after the military dictatorships or civil strife, including María Luisa Bemberg, Luis Puenzo and Eliseo Subiela in Argentina, before tackling the most significant movies of the 1990s and the entrancing films of the new millennium. These will feature not just the better-known names but a vast range of other wonderful Latin American films, including Fabián Bielinsky's 'Nine Queens', Lucrecia Martel's 'The Swamp' and Claudia Llosa's 'The Milk of Sorrows'.

Adam Feinstein is an acclaimed author, translator, journalist. His biography Pablo Neruda: a passion for life was published in 2004 (Harold Pinter called it ‘a masterpiece').
Feinstein has written for the Guardian, the TLS and has broadcast for the BBC. He is currently writing a book on Cuban cultural policy since the Revolution.
