Welcome. Bienvenidos.

This site features additional scholarly and audiovisual resources to supplement and complement the articles published in Studies in Spanish and Latin American Cinemas.  It will be updated regularly as materials become available for each new issue of the journal.  It will also be a home for additional commentary and discussions, as authors and their readers see fit.
