About the Author
Carolina Rocha is Associate Professor in Spanish at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. In 2014 she received the Fulbright Scholar Award from the University of Liverpool.
"Carolina Rocha succeeds in offering fresh insights into cinematic representations of competing visions of Argentine collective identities during a decade characterized by political upheavals that culminated in the brutal dictatorship of 1976. With a keen eye for detail, she never loses sight of the main arguments, which she conveys in a clear and flowing prose." --Raanan Rein, Tel Aviv University
"In this ambitious volume, Rocha combines the methodologies of the film scholar and the film historian to examine the Argentine motion-picture industry during a volatile period in the nation's cultural and political spheres [...] Providing relevant historical context for her observations, Rocha furthers understanding of an understudied period in Argentine cinema."
