- Book Presentation: Cuatro sexenios y un Cine Dorado (Four Presidential Terms and a Golden Age of Cinema)
Between 1941 and 1945, Mexican cinema had an unprecedented boom which is known today as the “Golden Age”. For nearly two decades, Mexican cinema was able to compete with the industries in the United States and several European nations. Developing in a post-war stage, Mexican films were well-received in their own country as well as the rest of Latin America thanks to fun, simple and relatable topics. Andrés Barradas, phD in Audiovisual Communications and Advertising from Barcelona, will give a talk on how this cinematic phenomenon launched and evolved, taking on the four presidential terms during which this Golden Age of Mexican Cinema took place.
The presentation will take place at 11:00 am at Casa del Mayorazgo de la Canal.
