    Abstract

    This study was initiated as a way of examining the reasons for the success of the 'mini boom' of contemporary Mexican cinema from 1999 onwards. Arguing the case for the filmmakers of these films to be considered as transnational auteurs, I also examine their role in the success of their films; whilst exploring their subsequent migration to Hollywood, via transnational theory. The overall aim is to compare the most prominent trio of directors, Cuaron, Inarritu and del Toro, in terms of their national texts and those they produced in Hollywood using such factors as visual style, production context and themes.
