Filming Pancho : how Hollywood shaped the Mexican Revolution by Margarita de Orellana( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pancho Villa (geboortenaam Doroteo Arango) was een bandiet en een beroemde revolutionair. In 1910 ging hij mee doen aan de Mexicaanse Madero revolutie en op 3 januari 1914 werd hij de eerste Mexicaanse superster van Hollywood. Hij ondertekende toen een exclusief contract voor $25,000 met the Mutual Film Corporation. Hiermee verplichtte hij zich aan de afspraak om ervoor te zorgen dat andere filmmaatschappijen het slagveld niet betraden. Ook moesten gevechten overdag plaatsvinden. Desnoods werden gevechten opnieuw gereconstrueerd, als er onvoldoende filmfragmenten waren. Villa is één van de hoofdpersonen in Orellana's levendige verslaglegging over de fascinatie van de Amerikaanse filmindustrie met de gebeurtenissen van de Mexicaanse revolutie. Door middel van analyse van memoires en krantenverslagen, brengt ze de ontwikkelingen van het vak van de documentaire filmmakers in kaart die in Mexico de gebeurtenissen verfilmden. Sommige van hen, die hun vak in het heetst van de strijd leerden, werden toonaangevende cameramannen in de Eerste Wereldoorlog. Regisseurs van Hollywood speelfilms ontwikkelden een stereotype van de Mexicaan tussen 1911 en 1917 - de omkoper, de bandiet, de schone señorita, de exotische Azteek -, en portretteerden de grens als een scheidslijn tussen orde en chaos. Filmende Pancho onthult veel van hoe Mexico werd geconstrueerd in de Amerikaanse verbeelding en hoe de filmbeelden de Amerikaanse expansie rechtvaardigden, als wel racistische en sociale vooroordelen bevestigden. In zijn voorwoord benadrukt filmhistoricus Kevin Brownlow hoe bijzonder deze studie is. Binnen de academische geschiedschrijving wordt namelijk nog steeds veel te weinig gebruik gemaakt van vroeg filmmateriaal. Het gaat namelijk om een heel belangrijke historische gebeurtenis en het plaatst de documentaires en de fictiefilms die zich door deze gebeurtenis lieten inspireren, op de voorgrond.De in de filmografie beschreven fictiefilm Mexican Filibusterers (VS, Kenean Buel, 1911) is aanwezig in de Filmcollectie van EYE Filminstituut Nederland
Tequila : a traditional art of Mexico( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tequila, "that burning river in a small glass," is more than the fuel of intense conversations or reckless abandon. As the national drink of Mexico, it has remained an essential part of the country's complex history and culture, from the Spanish colonial period to the modern nation of filmmakers and novelists. And its varieties, whether made by huge manufacturers or tiny family enterprises, are nearly endless. Every tequila aficionado has a little-known brand to claim as far superior to the rest. Profusely illustrated with vintage and modern photographs, Tequila is a complete guide to all things tequila. Opening with a set of basic questions and answers ("What is tequila?" "What is the difference between tequila and mezcal?" "What does 100% agave mean?"), the book presents an A-Z consumer's guide with descriptions of scores of brands of tequila from the most common to the rarest, discussing and rating their quality and relating some of their history, and accompanied by photos of the tequila bottles and labels-themselves a Mexican art form.A section of tequila recipes includes everything from cocktails to main dishes to desserts. Essays on the history and culture of tequila range from descriptions of its manufacture, travels in the state of Jalisco, where nearly all tequila is made, and a look at tequila as a national icon, accompanied by wonderful stills from classic Mexican movies. Finally, there are poems and stories about tequila from some of Mexico's finest writers, including a previously unpublished short story by novelist Laura Esquivel, author of Like Water for Chocolate. Tequila is as complex a subject as wine or single-malt whiskey, and both beginners and experts will find this the most comprehensive and reliable guide available, full of information and sheer pleasures

Diego Rivera : trazos del mito by Diego Rivera( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most illustrious native sons of Guanajuato is Diego Rivera, who was born in the state capital in 1886. Though he only lived in this city for a short time during his childhood, there are parts of it that unavoidably seep into his paintings. The same happens with figures such as miners, which the painter always depicted as heroic laborers. This volume also details certain historic events, like the dawn of Independence, which were immortalized in Rivera's works, especially in his murals. "How it was that his legendary figure was built? Here the best authors of Mexico help us decipher the strokes that created the myth called Diego Rivera" (Cataloger's translation) -- Dust jacket
