Abstract: Book reviewed: Emilio Bustamante & Jaime Luna-Victoria. Las miradas múltiples: El cine regional peruano. (Overlooked treasures. An introduction to Peruvian Regional Cinema) (Vols. I and II). Lima: Universidad de Lima, Fondo Editorial, ISBN 9789972453939 (Vol. I), 2017, 492 pages and ISBN 9789972453946 (Vol. II) , 2017, 444 pages. -- Las miradas múltiples: el cine regional peruano, volumes I and II, is the result of eight years of exhaustive research by Peruvian scholars, Emilio Bustamante and Jaime LunaVictoria. The authors define “Peruvian regional cinema” as any film that is produced by local filmmakers in the regions outside of Metropolitan Lima and the Constitutional Province of Callao. Volume I situates regional cinema within the larger system that is the Peruvian film industry, and offers a comprehensive analysis of 100 representative works of cinema produced in sixteen regions of Peru. Volume II is a selection of in-depth interviews with thirty-two filmmakers from across the country. The publication includes 123 pages of supporting statistical data and images. The ambitious scope of this research makes it the most comprehensive publication on Peruvian regional cinema to date. The book’s greatest contribution is that it highlights the cultural contribution of hundreds of Peruvian filmmakers whose work has been systematically overlooked in the capital city. To redress this situation, the authors critically comment on the ways inefficient public policies have affected regional filmmakers and offer recommendations to improve this situation.
