"These varied and vibrant essays at the cutting edge of Cuban cinema research offer important accounts of film directors', such as Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, analysis of headline themes - like "documentary-versus-feature" debates, the "Special Period," pop music and the zombie movie - and insider information to complement the assessments coming from abroad. A highly recommended collection!"--Stephen M. Hart, University College London
