This handbook provides a single-volume source of original scholarship on the intersection of film and media studies. Example articles that will help you for this course might be: Dreaming with Open Eyes: Latin American Media in the Digital Age or even The Globalization of Filmmaking in Latin America and the Middle East.
This handbook encompasses more than a century of filmmaking, film criticism and film reception, looking at the ways in which the idea of 'queer cinema' has expanded as a descriptor for a global arts practice. Example chapter that could be of interest: Tracing Lesbian Cinema in Latin America.

Includes 200 essays by leading film scholars analyzing the most important, influential, innovative and interesting films of all time. Arranged alphabetically, each entry explores why each film is significant for those who study film and explores the social, historical and political contexts in which the film was produced. Ranging from Hollywood classics to international bestsellers to lesser-known representations of national cinema, this collection is deliberately broad in scope crossing decades, boundaries and genres.
Provides thorough coverage of films and filmmakers, including legendary films, actors and actresses, directors, writers and other production artists. Entries include a detailed essay written by an expert; biographies; filmographies; comprehensive credits; major awards; and updated bibliographies, as well as photographs. Example: Buñuel, Luis.

Search Tools to Find & Discover Books:
UC Library Search is the easiest way to find and discover books. To make it a bit easier, when you enter keywords into UC Library Search, use the filters on the left-hand side and select "books" and "book chapters" as the format, and also pay attention to publication year.
Search for thousands of e-books, with emphasis on humanities and social sciences.
Google Books contains millions of digitized books beyond UCI Library. You can use it as a "discovery tool" . For example, you can keyword search an artist's name to see where they appear in various chapters of books. Only public domain (out of copyright) books are available as full-text in this tool, so check the library for the full-text copy.

Because this course can be interdisciplinary in nature, you may be looking at multiple sections in the library (history, social sciences, humanities, communication, film studies, and more). Here are a few starting points to browse the library stacks:
