A survey of Spanish cinema over the past century.

Through a series of close readings of films made in the Republican period, under Franco, in transition, and more recently under socialism, these contributors seek to present a clearer picture of the range and depth of Spanish national cinema.

Contributors: Stacy N. Beckwith, Juan-Miguel Company-Ramón, Tom Conley, Marvin D’Lugo, Jesús González-Requena, Román Gubern, Lesley Heins Walker, Francisco Llinás, Antonio Monegal, Andrés Moreno, Oscar Pereira, Ricardo Roque-Baldovinos, Paul Julian Smith, Ann Marie Stock, Casimiro Torreiro, Kathleen M. Vernon, and Teresa Vilarós.

This is a coherently organized and wide-ranging volume of essays on some of the most important landmarks of Spanish film history. Drawn from both sides of the Atlantic, the contributors include some of the most well-known scholars working in this area. This is another excellent volume on Spanish cinema, full of scholarship and insight.

As with Italian neorealism and the French nouvelle vague, Spanish cinema developed distinctive style and content from the 1930s to the 1970s. Yet Spanish film evolved largely without reference to its international counterparts, isolated as it was by the repression and censorship of Franco’s regime. Through a series of close readings of films made in the Republican period, under Franco, in transition, and more recently under socialism, these contributors seek to present a clearer picture of the range and depth of Spanish national cinema.
