BANUELOS CAPISTRAN, Jacob  y  OLMEDO ESTRADA, Juan Carlos. Representations of Violence in Mexican Cinema Awarded at International Festivals 2000-2020. En-clav. pen [online]. 2023, vol.17, n.33, e539.  Epub 12-Mayo-2023. ISSN 2594-1100.

The main objective of this research is to identify and analyze the themes of Mexican cinema awarded at nodal international festivals between 2000 and 2020. The study uses a mixed methodology that combines a longitudinal search for the creation of a historical database on award-winning Mexican films at international festivals. For two decades. The quantitative methodology is used to know the number of internationally awarded Mexican films, as well as their evolution over time and their themes during the decades from 2000 to 2020, through the construction of a database based on reports and databases, specialized data. The theoretical-methodological analysis of cinematographic discourses is carried out based on the concepts of violence developed by Galtung, Foucault, Arendt, Butler, Magnani, Han, as well as from Williams’s concept of structure of feeling. The study reveals that 81% of the awards received by Mexican cinematography at international festivals deal with a type of structural, direct or cultural violence, expressed through state violence, poverty and inequality, gender violence, domestic violence and the war on drugs. The Mexican cinema that has participated during the last two decades in nodal international festivals, has experienced a progressive tendency to deal with issues related to violence in Mexico and it is foreseeable that this trend will continue.
