Gael Garcia Bernal and the Latin American New Wave by Jethro Soutar

Book Description

Gael Garcia Bernal has become the most well-known face of Latin American cinema. He has starred in many of the Latin American movies that have been very successful in the UK and the US, including Y Tu Mama Tambien, Amores Perros and The Motorcycle Diaries. His more recent films include Babel and The Science of Sleep. He is passionately political; well known for his activities in promoting awareness of big issues such as poverty in Latin America and Fair Trade and for his protests at the 2005 G8 summit. He has been labelled the new Johnny Depp and James Dean, and has topped countless "Year's Sexiest Man" lists. This book will be the first biography of the star and will also tell the story of the rise of Latin America's pioneer filmmakers - driven to produce movies that bring the problems of areas like the Favelas to the World's screens. GGB has a connection with the UK: taking a break from filmmaking a few years ago, he worked on building sites and in bars in London whilst attending drama school. This book will appeal to fans of film books like Peter Biskind's Easy Riders, Raging Bulls and Down and Dirty Pictures.
