Writing National Cinema: Film Journals and Film Culture in Peru .

Writing National Cinema traces the twenty-year history of the Peruvian film journal Hablemos de cine alongside that of Peruvian filmmaking and film culture. Similar to the influential French journal Cahiers du cinma, Hablemos de cine began with a group of young critics ted in claiming the directors use of mise-en-scne as the exclusive method of film analysis rather than thematic or star-oriented topics hence, the title of the publication, derived from their battle cry at post-screening discussions: Lets talk about film. Their critical authority grew with the rise of local filmmaking and the nationalist fervor of the late 1960s and early 1970s. When government sponsorship spurred feature filmmaking in the mid-1970s, their perspective eschewed the politically militant readings that characterized most writing and film from the rest of Latin America at the time. By the 1980s, the critics at Hablemos de cine had helped to engender a commercial, Hollywood-influenced cinematic visionbest exemplified by Peruvian auteur Francisco Lombardiand stimulated a unique, if isolating, national identity through film. The first book-length study of Peruvian film culture to appear in English, Middentss work offers thoughtful consideration of the impact of criticism on the visual stylings of a national cinema.
