Description: This in-depth study of Mexican film director Alejandro Gonzaacute;lez Intilde;aacute;rritu explores his role in moving Mexican filmmaking from a traditional nationalist agenda toward a more global focus. Working in the United States and in Mexico, Intilde;aacute;rritu crosses national borders while his movies break the barriers of distribution, production, narration, and style. His features also experiment with transnational identity as characters emigrate and settings change. In studying the international scope of Intilde;aacute;rritu's influential filmsAmores Perros,21 Grams, andBabel, Celestino Deleyto and Mariacute;a del Mar Azcona trace common themes such as human suffering and redemption, chance, and accidental encounters. The authors also analyze the director's powerful visual style and his consistent use of multiple characters and a fragmented narrative structure. The book concludes with a new interview of Intilde;aacute;rritu that touches on the themes and subject matter of his chief works. Celestino Deleyto is a professor of film and English literature at the University of Zaragoza, Spain, and author ofThe Secret Life of Romantic Comedyand others. Mariacute;a del Mar Azcona is an assistant professor of film at the University of Zaragoza and author ofThe Multi-Protagonist Film.
