Summary: Still the finest comprehensive analysis of the subject to have appeared in English, Magical Reels charts the development of Latin American film industries in a world increasingly dominated by the advanced technology and massive distribution budgets of the North American mainstream.

John King sets up a historical framework to unfold the overlapping histories of cinema in the continent: the itinerant filmmakers of the silent era who projected their films in c
afes and village halls, the inventive use of vernacular music and local comedy in the early sound pictures, the ''golden age'' of 1940s Mexican cinema, and the new cinema - oppositional cinema made ''with an idea in the head and a camera in the hand'' - of the late 1950s and beyond. A new chapter written for this edition examines Latin American cinema in the previous decade.
