SALINAS, Claudio. Coloniality, Modernity and Representations in Today's Latin American Cinema: From Memories Of Underdevelopment To Pizza, Beer, Fag. Aisthesis [online]. 2012, n.51, pp. 125-140. ISSN 0718-7181. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-71812012000100008.
The following paper aims to review and analyze how Latin America's colonialism and modernity have been represented, built and interrogated in two major films of regional contemporary cinema: Memorias del Subdesarrollo (Memories of Underdevelopment) Cuba, 1968 and Pizza, Birra, Faso (Pizza, Beer, Fag), Argentina, 1998. We have two questions to answer: What images of coloniality and modernity are pictured in these films? How are «coloniality» and «modernity» articulated in the selected films?
Keywords : Latin American cinema; Colonialism; Modernity.
