Mexican Director Wary of Screen Quota Cut

2006/03/22 | 124 views | Permalink | Source

Mexico's leading female movie director says South Korean filmmakers must fight to preserve the domestic screen quota.

In a letter sent to a civic committee dedicated to preserving the quota Wednesday, Maria Novaro warned that the film sector could suffer the same unfortunate fate as Mexico following the Latin American country's free trade agreement with the United States in 1994.

The number of Mexican movies since the agreement's conclusion has plunged from more than a hundred a year to just four.

Novaro has won awards from the Cannes and Venice film festivals.
