The vision of Gabriel Figueroa Mateos (1907–1997) is not limited exclusively to his cinematographic work, which consists of more than two hundred films and includes several of the masterpieces of the Mexican movie industry. His multidisciplinary and iconographic production was decisive in the construction of the visual imagination of post-revolutionary Mexico.
This issue number 32 of Luna Córnea, published in book form by RM, examines in detail the prolific career of Gabriel Figueroa as a creator of still and moving images —portraitist, still photographer, cinematographer— and as an emblematic figure in the dream factory that provided several generation of Mexicans with entertainment and their “sentimental education.”
