(Spanish and Portuguese translations also available)

In the last decade, Latin American feminist film studies has become an increasingly visible and significant area in traditional scholarly pursuits (publications and academic conferences) but also in the broader realms of film preservation, archival work, and international networks such as the recently created Latin American Women’s Audiovisual Research Network, RAMA (www.red-rama.com). 

Nevertheless, much work remains to be done to ensure the preservation, systematization and access to documentary sources for the study of women’s filmmaking in the region. On the one hand, national cinematheques and film archives are often in precarious circumstances due to political, economic and/or institutional reasons (as is the case of Cinemateca Brasileira currently under threat of closure by Jair Bolsonaro’s regime). On the other hand, personal collections stored in the houses or basements of film researchers, filmmakers or family members and friends are also in danger of disappearing. Typically, these private collections are key sources when pursuing research on women filmmakers since their work has often been overlooked by official archives.

To counteract this situation, we need projects that foster a collective retrieval and resignification of those primary materials that constitute the basis of our research work, such as programmatic documents; statutes concerning the creation of associations or collectives; minutes and meeting agendas; scripts or treatments for films that were never made; unpublished interviews; photographs; letters; production materials (shooting plans, budgets); promotional materials; and documentation produced in encounters and conferences (pamphlets, programs, posters), among others.

As a necessary step in this direction, the special issue of Studies in Spanish & Latin American Cinemas ‘Documents for a feminist history of Latin American cinema’ seeks to map, systematize, make visible and offer a critical and contextual framework for understanding archival sources about the filmmaking practices of Latin American women who have worked in cinema, video and/or television, both inside and outside the region. Our desire is to establish a close intergenerational and cross-cultural dialogue among researchers and filmmakers. Moreover, we plan to collaborate with already existing archives and collections.
