BOLANOS FLORIDO, Leidy Paola. The censorship of Garras de oro and the spread of antiamericanization in the 1920s: an international issue. Secuencia [online]. 2020, n.106, e1695.  Epub 03-Mar-2020. ISSN 2395-8464.

The article shows the diplomatic and political exchange that took place between Colombia and the United States as a result of the screening of the film Garras de oro. The methodology is based on the analysis of international film magazines, local newspapers and unpublished US consular records. A description is provided of the debates between the government of Colombia, the local press and the US State Department, which led to the censorship of the silent Colombian film Garras de oro (1927, Cali Films), whose plot recalled the painful episode of the separation of Panama from Colombia and its possession by the “Yankees” in 1903. The article establishes the fact that Colombia’s immersion in the cinema was an international event that was part of the actions the United States undertook to cope with the effects of the Anti-Americanization in Latin America, and traces the beginnings of bilateral relations between Colombia and the United States as regards cultural matters.

Palavras-chave : Garras de oro; antiamericanization; film industry; cultural diplomacy; United States-Colombia bilateral relations.
