David George, Gizella Meneses publish film studies book

Emeritus Professor of Spanish and Portuguese David George and Associate Professor of Spanish Gizella Meneses will publish their book, Argentine Cinema: From Noir to Neo-Noir, in December 2017.

Argentine Cinema begins with definitions of film noir and its international iterations, presenting a history of the development of film in Argentina from the 1940s to the present, as well as a technical, aesthetic, and socio-historical analysis of such recent Argentine neo-noir films as The Aura, The Secret in Their Eyes, and The German Doctor.

According to the publisher’s notes, the book also “considers the question of inscription of such classic noirs as Double Indemnity and The Third Man and looks forward to future scholarly work on other Latin American noir and neo-noir movies, especially those produced in Mexico and Brazil.”

Argentine Cinema is being published by Lexington Books.
