This book focuses on the contemporary production and consumption of Latin American culture in the UK through the lens of the ¡Viva! Film Festival in Manchester. The book traces the growth of Latin American communities in Britain; the popularity of Latin American literature, music, and film in many of the country's largest cities, including London, Leeds, Birmingham,Manchester, and others; and shows how people in Britain who do not have Latin American origins consume Latin American culture to reconcile issues of self-identity and cosmopolitanism.
