From Latin America to Hollywood: Latino Film Culture in Los Angeles 1967-2017 explores the intersections, inspirations, and creative intentions of a wide-ranging group of Latino and Latin American filmmakers through the gathering and close reading of their oral histories by an acclaimed group of scholars and writers. From the earliest days of Hollywood, through the transition to sound and the expansion of national cinemas, this volume examines such themes as the cinematic influences of Cinema Novo and the evolution of the Chicano Film Movement, the educational impact of Latino-made films, visions of “Hollywood” by Latin American directors, the ever-evolving role of women in the profession, the impact and limitations of film festival exposure, and what the future may hold for emerging filmmakers from the region.

The symposium will explore themes raised by the Academy’s PST: LA/LA oral history subjects and publication contributors, including issues of origins and identity, borders and migration, choice of language and issues of translation, and emerging voices. Copies of the publication will be made available to Symposium attendees. 152 pages with full color images, the book is available free-of-charge, in print and e-book versions.
