a)   LIVING UNDOCUMENTED, A NEW NETFLIX SERIES THAT GIVES A HUMAN FACE TO IMMIGRANT STORIES

Following the hearings of oral arguments and stories from DACA recipients in the Supreme Court of the United States, Mediático is delighted to present an excellent and timely new post by regular contributor and newly promoted Professor, Dr Deborah Shaw about the new Netflix series Living Undocumented.

b)    THESE MEXICAN MÄDCHEN 

A double post by Catherine Grant and Robert Carlos Ortiz.  Catherine Grant presentsa comparative videographic study showcasing the repetitions and variations across two sets of corresponding sequences from the three direct film adaptations of Christa Winsloe’s Mädchen in Uniform / Girls in Uniform (aka Ritter Nérestan and Gestern und Heute, 1930-32): Mädchen in Uniform (Leontine Sagan, Germany 1931); Muchachas de uniforme (Alfredo B. Crevenna, Mexico 1951); Mädchen in Uniform (Géza von Radványi, West Germany 1958). Roberto Carlos Ortiz undertakes a production and textual analysis of Muchachas de uniforme (Alfredo B. Crevenna) by situating the Mexican remake of Mädchen in Uniform in the midst of Mexico’s transnational and genre based classical film industry, and also exploring the appeal of its Italian-Polish star Irasema Dilian and the queer pleasures offered by the film.

c)     SO, WHY HASN’T J-LO BEEN NOMINATED FOR ANY OF THE BIG FILM INDUSTRY AWARDS?

In a timely new post regular contributor Niamh Thornton, Reader in Latin American Studies at the University of Liverpool, explores why J-Lo hasn’t been nominated for any awards this year despite her critically lauded supporting performance in Hustlers (Lorene Scafaria 2019). You can read one of Dr Thornton’s Mediático posts here and a talk on González Iñárritu’s Mexican Masculinities here, and access her blog on Mexican culture and cinema here.
