Jesse Lerner, co-director of ISMO research team and associate professor of Media Studies at Pitzer College will present a screening of Cine Reciclado: Found Footage Fimmaking in Latin America at Cal State LA.
This collection places Latin American and Latino production within a broader dialogue, as it establishes productive connections between periods, national contexts, and filmmakers, exploring the diverse ways of seeing and modes of image-making practiced by Latin American and diasporic producers. The book is unique in its ability to span countries, media, and time periods. It will thus be an invaluable resource for scholars, curators, artists and others interested in the history of Latin America, modern art, small-gauge film, political and Third Cinema and other non-commercial cinemas.
