Abstract and Keywords

This article studies Latin American film during the digital age and determines how much of its recent success in the global market is due to the arrival of new technology. It reveals that the technological advances arrived at time when Latin American industries experienced a critical period near the end of the 1980s. Nevertheless, these technologies soon helped in the marketing of Latin American cinema worldwide and provided new levels of technical finesse. The next sections look at the technological transition of Latin American film to digital, and identify the different trends in style and narrative that were used by Latin American filmmakers.

Keywords: Latin America, film, digital age, new technology, global marketing, technological transition, trends, style, narrative
