BP logo and book shelves


This collection of screenplays by Mexican women screenwriters is truly a first: it includes five works that became important and successful films within Mexican cinema presented in both the original Spanish and in English translation.

"This innovative and ambitious project will, I hope, be instrumental in generating recognition of the importance of screenplays written by women. . . . This is a long-awaited book that will make an impact."

—Catherine Bloch, Cineteca Nacional de México
