This collection offers a new lens through which to examine Spain's cinema production following the isolation imposed by the Franco regime. The seventeen key films analysed in the volume span a period of thirty-five years that have been crucial in the development of Spain Spanish democracy and Spanish cinema. They encompass different genres (horror thriller melodrama social realism documentary) both popular (Los abrazos rotos/Broken Embraces Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and more select art house fare (En la ciudad de Sylvia/In the City of Sylvia El espiritu de la colmena/Spirit of the Beehive) and are made in English (as both first and second language) Basque Castilian Catalan and French. Offering an expanded understanding of 'national' cinemas the volume explores key works by Guillermo del Toro and Lucrecia Martel alongside an examination of the ways in which established auteurs (Almodovar Jose Garci Carlos Saura) and the younger generations of filmmakers (Cesc Gay Amenabar Bollain) have harnessed cinematic language towards a commentary on the nation-state.
