Directory of World Cinema: Spain, Paperback / softback Book

Directory of World Cinema: Spain Paperback / softback

Edited by Lorenzo J. Torres Hortelano

Part of the Directory of World Cinema series

Paperback / softback


Though loved by moviegoers worldwide, Spanish cinema has thus far suffered from a relative lack of critical attention.

Focusing on the vast corpus of films that have left their marks on generations of spectators, Directory of World Cinema: Spain returns the national cinema of Spain rightfully to the forefront with numerous full-color stills and essays establishing the key players and genres in their sociopolitical context, including civil war films, romances, comedies, and the cinema of the transition.

From the award-winning big-budget productions of Pedro Almodovar in Madrid to Pere Portabella's experimental documentaries and the influential Barcelona School, reviews cover individual titles in considerable depth.

Essential reading for aficionados of Spanish cinema at all levels, this volume provides an accessible overview of the main trends and issues in Spanish film.
