This is the first English-language book to provide a critical panorama of the last twenty years of Peruvian cinema. Through analysis of the nation's diverse modes of filmmaking, it offers an insight into how global debates around cinema are played out on and off screen in a distinctive national context.

The insertion of post-conflict Peru within neoliberalism resulted in widespread commodification of all areas of life, significantly impacting cinema culture. Consequently, the principal structural concept of this collection is the interplay between film production and market forces, an interaction which makes dynamism and instability the defining features of 21st-century Peruvian cinema.
