The turn of the 21st century ushered in a thrilling new wave (or buena onda) of Mexican moviemaking. It was not the first such wave, but it broke upon the global cinema scene with an unprecedented energy. In his roving investigative study author Jason Wood offers extensive interviews with all of the key figures of the buena onda, coupled to a hugely insightful examination of Mexico’s colourful film culture, past and present. The Faber Book of Mexican Cinema is currently book of the month in Sight & Sound.
Jason Woods will give an informal presentation about the book. Refreshments will be served.
