Abstract

This chapter analyzes contemporary film stardom in Latin America through three stars who represent not just a gender and geographical sweep of the continent (Mexican Gael García Bernal, Argentine Ricardo Darín, and Brazilian Sônia Braga), but also the key discourses that define how Latin American stardom currently works: : the abandonment of the local/shift into the global and eventual return, the tension between art house and mainstream cinema, national and international stardom, and ethnic stardom.
