Memory in World Cinema: Critical Essays, edited by Dr. Nancy Membrez, has been published by McFarland & Company, Inc. and is now available for purchase

Drawn initially from presentations from a series of film conferences held at the University of Texas at San Antonio, this collection of essays covers multiple geographical, linguistic, and cultural areas worldwide, emphasizing the historical and cultural interpretation of films.

Included are works by Membrez as well as other UTSA Modern Languages and Literatures faculty, Dr. Melissa Wallace and Dr. Molly Zaldivar.

Membrez is an associate professor of Spanish literature, culture, and Spanish/Latin American film at the University of Texas at San Antonio and teaches film production. She edited two books on Eliseo Subiela's films, wrote the English subtitles for four Subiela films, and produced three featurettes for the Kino Lorber DVD/Blu-ray of Man Facing Southeast (Subiela, 1986). Her first feature film, Portrait in Sepia Tone, won Best Picture and Best Sound Track at the International Filmmakers Film Festival in Kent, England in 2008.
