RODRIGUEZ, Israel. Film Renewal and Authoritarianism in México, 1970-1976. Review of the Idea of the Filmmaker State. Hist. graf [online]. 2022, n.58, pp.87-131.  Epub 21-Fev-2022. ISSN 1405-0927.

This article offers a new approach to the relationship between Mexican State and film industry during the presidency of Luis Echeverría. Although this issue has been addressed before, this article argues that the causal relationship established between the political crisis of the pri regime towards the end of the 1960s and the film renovation project implemented in the 1970s needs to be rethought and made more complex. To this end, based on the analysis of newspapers and archive documents, this text intends to show that the so-called “nationalization” of cinema was in fact a desperate attempt to save from failure a complex modernization project that faced constant obstacles. The “nationalization” of Mexican cinema occurred towards the end of echeverrismo is presented more as the failure of a policy of industrial renovation than the success of a political project.

Palavras-chave : Mexican Cinema; State Intervention; Crisis; Nationalization; Luis Echeverría; Rodolfo Echeverría.
