Aspectos documentales del cine mexicano de ficción. Décadas 1940-2010
From the research work that was carried out within this doctoral program to obtain the D.E.A. entitled “Beginning of the Documentary in Mexico with Educational Purposes” in which we worked from the arrival of the cinema to Mexico until the 1930s, we found an issue that has been the subject of innumerable analyzes by theorists and students of the documentary and which was to give walk to this thesis work. This question revolved around the legitimacy of the cinema of the real, the assertion that documentary film borrows from fiction for its construction. This motivated the interest to investigate the other side of the coin or if the fiction would not also borrow from the documentary for its realization. This is how this hypothesis was proposed to the person who was the director of the thesis for the D.E.A. and today director of this doctoral thesis: Dr. Margarita Ledo Andión, who promoted this work from the corresponding protocol and during the research work. The questions that had triggered the work that was to be titled “Documentary aspects of Mexican fiction cinema. Decades 1940-2010”, were the following: Does the fiction film take loans from the documentary for its construction? Do we find documentary aspects in Mexican fiction films?
