2016 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title

Provides sophisticated theoretical approaches to Latin American cinema and sexual culture.


Despite All Adversities examines a representative selection of notable queer films by Spanish America’s most important directors since the 1950s. Each chapter focuses on a single film and offers rich and thoughtful new interpretations by a prominent scholar. The book explores films from across the region, including Tomás Gutiérrez Alea’s and Juan Carlos Tabío’s Fresa y chocolate (Strawberry and Chocolate, 1993), Marcelo Piñeyro’s Plata quemada (Burnt Money, 2000), Barbet Schroeder’s La Virgen de los Sicarios (Our Lady of the Assassins, 2000), Lucía Puenzo’s XXY (XXY, 2007), Francisco J. Lombardi’s No se lo digas a nadie (Don’t Tell Anyone, 1998), Arturo Ripstein’s El lugar sin límites (Hell Without Limits, 1978), among others. A survey of recent lesbian-themed Mexican films is also included.

“This book is an exciting, thought-provoking introduction to LGBTQ films from Latin America … Highly recommended.” — CHOICE
