Chicana and Chicano Film Culture

Book - 1993
Rate this:
The author (Chicana/o studies, Univ. of California at Davis) analyzes recent Chicano films, including La Bamba (1987) and American Me (1992), plus some earlier, less-well-known films. In a time of increasing awareness of diversity issues, her provocative, feminist-based analysis of Chicano films and their messages, which often counters popular images of Chicano history and culture, is certainly welcome. Fregoso also contributed to Chon A. Noriega's Chicanos and Film: Essays on Chicano Representation and Resistance (Garland, 1992), which offers a selection of essays by various critics of this fairly new area of film criticism. Recommended for Chicano studies, women's studies, and large film collections. -- from Library Journal
