Cinema At the Edges : New Encounters with Julio Medem, Bigas Luna and JosA (c) Luis GuerA-n Hardback

Description

The works of popular Spanish film directors Julio Medem, Juan Jose Bigas Luna, and Jose Luis Guerin are newly appraised in relation to their engagement with alternative national and cinematic subjectivities.

Their films examine the limitations of the cinematic gaze, as the author shows, highlighting the ways in which these directors make recourse to hybridity, contact, and interface to overcome the binary power dynamic previously thought to be a feature of cinema.

This book explores their status as solely "Spanish" filmmakers while focusing on their diverse and immensely creative output, offering new readings that engage with current debates in visual culture surrounding psychoanalytic theory, phenomenology, and theories of documentary practice.
