Description - Contemporary Spanish Cinema by Barry Jordan

Offers an analysis of the main trends and issues in Spanish film since the death of Franco in 1975. While taking account of cinema during the Franco dictatorship, the text focuses principally on developments in the since the 1970s. Acknowledging the breadth and diversity of Spanish film production since the ending of the regfime and the transition to democracy, this study includes chapters on Spanish film's concern with the past on popular film genres (including the comedy and the thriller), representations of gender and sexuality, and the work of women film professionals, both behind and in front of the camera, as well as film produced in Spain's autonomous communities, particularly in Catalonia and the Basque Country. The book examines the work of established directors, such as Carlos Saura, Victor Erice, Pedro Almodovar, Pilar Miro, Bigas Luna and Josefina Molina, as well as new talents, such as Julio Medem, Juanma Bajo Ulloa, Alex de la Igelsia, Iciar Bollain, Isabel Coixet and Marta Balletbo-Coll.
