Urban Space, Politics and Socio-ethnic Relations in Roma

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceedingpeer-review


Roma, written and directed by Alfonso Cuaron, has been one of the most successful Latin American films of recent decades, while also widely recognised as an important piece of social commentary, and a window on Mexico City in the early 1970s. The cinematography and storyline of the film offer insights into social change in the city, as well as the use of private and public space, and what this says about social and ethnic relations, as well as how business is carried out within the city. This developmental paper sets out a project to explore these themes.
