QUERY: Latin American films and literature related to nuclear science and technology

Peter Soland's picture

Dear Colleagues,

I hope the New Year finds you all well. I am looking for references or leads on any Latin American films or literary works (including poetry or scripts from/recordings of theater performances) related to nuclear science and technology for an ongoing research project. The films/literature need not explicity discuss nuclear science/tech in Latin America (although if they do, then that's wonderful), as long as they relate to nuclear development in some way. Sources may be in Spanish, Portuguese, or English.


Best wishes for the New Year,

Hello Pete,
I do not know if this is what you are looking for, but I am aware of a Mexican satirical novel called "Plutonio en la sangre" by Gonzalo Martré (2012) about spies, terrorists, and an atomic bomb. It is an ideological, fictional text.

Thanks so much, Elisa! I really appreciate the lead!
