Abstract Based on cultural studies methodology, this article had a double aim: firstly, it addressed Latin American narconarratives in contemporary visual culture, showing that they occupy an important place in the globalized audiovisual scene. Then, we analyzed how some of these productions use apparently feminist themes, representing strong female characters in very masculine and patriarchal environments, as well as the limits of these representations, given the fact that they do not cross the spectrum of liberal feminism. We will argue, in this sense, that feminist themes have been used in an non-critical way, serving to reinforce some capitalist-patriarchal values. (AU)
