Hidden Cinema of the Southwest and Mexico is a one-day symposium with two nights of screenings focusing on how and why amateur, industrial, educational, and independent filmmakers have represented the American Southwest and Mexico. We wish to help cultivate a more comprehensive understanding of the Southwest's and Mexico’s cinematic past by showcasing and analyzing the ways the region has been imagined in “hidden” and lesser-known films produced by non-Hollywood and amateur filmmakers during the last century.
The Symposium will be hosted by the Poetry Center and the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Symposium sponsors are: The University of Arizona Department of English, The Center for Creative Photography,
The Poetry Center, the Tucson Film Office and The Northern Arizona University School of Communication, Cinema and Visual Culture Studies, and Cline Library, Special Collections.
Tucson's average daytime temperature in February is 71F.
