About this book

Amácio Mazzaropi's work is a unique instance in Brazilian culture - as an artist not connected with the subsidized film industry, he developed a singular voice and represents a segment of the population usually either ignored or viewed with contempt by the established, experimental filmmakers.

Reviews

“Bueno’s writing style runs smoothly. Its language is clear, accessible and devoid of academic jargon, even though this book can be an excellent source for courses on the study of Latin America’s 20th century cinema. Bueno has done a thorough and laudable investigation of Mazzaropi’s legacy within a vast spectrum of Brazil’s social landscape. … Amacio Mazzaropi in the Film and Culture of Brazil targets students and scholars devoted to Brazilian civilization, cinema at large, and gender studies.” (Dário Borim Jr., Luso-Brazilian Review, Vol. 52 (2), December, 2015)

"Without diminishing the importance of the Cinema Novo movement, Bueno's study is very much committed to the proposition that of equal importance are alternative film projects in Brazil. She argues that there is a fundamental ideological problem involved in seeing Brazilian filmmaking of the 1940-65 period only in terms of what may or may not have attracted international attention. Hers is the first monograph-length study of Amácio Mazzaropi, his important films, and the social and cultural parameters they involve, parameters that provide an important index to popular culture in Brazil at the time, particularly as it relates to São Paulo and changing patterns of urban constituencies." - David William Foster, Regents' Professor of Spanish and Women and Gender Studies, University of Arizona

"This volume arrives at a prescient moment, when contemporary research on Brazilian cinema seeks novel approaches for a rapidly changing reality: that of a Latin American cultural and economic powerhouse at the outset of a new global order. Bueno's research on Mazzaropi makes a significant contribution to Latin American film studies by awarding long overdue attention to a modern-day master, filling a void in the national mapping of Brazilian identity." - Héctor Fernández L'Hoeste, professor of Latin American Culture, Georgia State University
