This book, which was published by Isla Negra Editores, was among the selections chosen to represent Puerto Rico, guest of honor at this year´s international exhibition.

This anthology, which has been labeled as "a fundamental reference" and "a foundational text essential to the research and critical studies of the cinematographies of the Caribbean," reunites 26 essays that reflect on the visual manifestations and representations of identity, culture, and traditions integral to the Hispanic Caribbean cinema, particularly that one of Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
