After taking a comprehensive exam on the history of Latin American cinema based upon a woefully outdated bibliography, I put this together with the intention of helping future generations.  It’s also been useful to me in prepping the literature review of recent work on Latin American cinema for my dissertation.  Basically I’m posting this to help others, and to solicit any suggestions for addition.
