The New Cinema Movements and Their Transatlantic Networks of Exchange in the 1960s and 1970s

My book manuscript works to de-center the dominant yet impoverishing center-periphery logic adopted in many studies of the New Cinemas movements of the long 1960s, which tend to view international film movements of the era as subsidiary to developments in Europe, especially France. This study shifts the focus instead to the rich networks of transatlantic exchange that characterized this period. I analyze a number of important films and filmmakers that, together with essays, manifestos, and technology, travelled back and forth between Argentina, Cuba, Brazil, France, Spain, and Mozambique. I show how the aesthetic, affective, and ideological contours of filmmaking were shaped by the transformational encounters, and sometimes equally productive "dis-encounters," that resulted. My "entangled histories" approach also seeks to contribute to current scholarship in transnational cinema studies as well as in postcolonial theory.
