Allegorical and metaphorical fiction has been a highly productive tendency in Chilean and Argentinean film-making during the recent military dictatorships in both countries. The main goal of this article is to understand the dimensions and characteristics of this tendency in recent years. Its specific goals are to identify and analyse two different variants of this tendency, each of which is definable in relation to the deployment of the narrative system and the mise-en-scène; to analyse the ways in which fiction films about dictatorships sought to denounce and resist the social norms and practices instituted by the de facto governments of Argentina and Chile.

Formerly published as Studies in Hispanic Cinemas, 2004-2013, the journal is dedicated to the study of Spanish-speaking and Latin American cinemas. Coverage includes the cinemas of Spain and Spanish-speaking South, Central and North America, including the Caribbean, and Brazil. Our target readership includes students, teachers and scholars. The double-blind peer-reviewed journal is written in English to maximize the opportunities for contact between academic disciplines such as Media, Film Studies, Latin American and Post- colonial Studies, as well as Hispanic Studies, thereby encouraging an inter-cultural and inter-disciplinary focus.
