Botín de guerra Spoils of war by David Blaustein( Visual )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El realizador Daivd Blaustein se concentra en el legado de la "guerra sucia" argentina durante los años 1976-83, durante los cuales miles de ciudadanos fueron secuesrados, torturados y asesinados por el gobierno mlitar y sus hijos fueron tomados y dados en adopción a hogares de represores de la extrema derecha. La perseverancia de las abuelas de estos niños creó una fuerza que marchaba sin miedo contra las autoridades en la Plaza de Mayo y es a través de ellas que se creó un banco de datos DNA después de la restauración de la democracia, que ayuda a la identificación de estos chicos y que recupera este "botín de guerra"."--Estuche

Allá en el Rancho Grande by Fernando de Fuentes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orphaned siblings José Francisco and his sister Eulalia came to Rancho Grande to be watched over by their godmother Ángela. So did the unfortunate Cruz, their late mother's godchild, when she was orphaned as well. They grow up together with Felipe, the patron's son, who becomes José Francisco's best friend. Now Felipe has become the Patron, and has made José Francisco the manager. José Francisco is secretly in love with Cruz, but when Ángela notices that Felipe likes Cruz as well, a series of misunderstandings put their friendship to the test. This signature film marks the beginning of a new and distinctly Mexican genre, the comedia ranchera, which continues to be exploited in Mexican cinema. The classical hacienda (ranch) setting and its folkloric, romanticized nostalgia struck a chord with the Mexican middle class in the 1930s, doing much to establish mariachi as a national musical form
