Loy, Jane M.
The first section of this guide discusses topics such as the methods used to select educational films, their quality, the uses and values of films in the college classroom. After a brief section covering how to use the guide, 65 films that deal with Latin America and are recommended for use in conjunction with college courses in Latin American history are listed. For each title, information is provided on running time, availability in color, producer, distributor, and costs. A detailed annotation describing the film's contents and a qualitative appraisal are included, along with a brief list of suggested related readings and an indication of the specific audience for which the film is most appropriate. Thirteen recommended feature films are also treated. In addition, the guide lists some 73 additional educational films which are not recommended for various reasons such as being out of date, juvenile, inaccurate, politically or otherwise biased, peripheral, or dull. A bibliography of film-related materials and a discussion of the use and teaching of Latin American music are also included. (PB)
