Book Cover
A Companion to Spanish Cinema

Spanish cinema has firmly established itself on the international film scene over the last two decades, and is now an integral part of the syllabus for students of Spanish and Cinema Studies. A Companion to Spanish Cinema closes a gap in existing scholarship, presenting an insightful and provocative collection of newly commissioned essays covering the whole time-span of Spanish cinema.

Drawing on the best of the American, British, and Spanish critical traditions, twenty-six top international scholars discuss major issues in Spanish cinema from a variety of theoretical and geographical perspectives. The volume's thematic approach to the history of Spanish cinema is unique in the field, and combines coverage of key topics with in-depth textual analysis of specific films. A rich mosaic of genres and formats are explored - from popular and art cinema to documentary, shorts, experimental film, and animation - as are the cultural, artistic, industrial, commercial, and theoretical contexts of the medium.

An invaluable introduction to Spanish cinema for first-time students and teachers of Spanish culture, this companion also offers innovative models for future research that will benefit experienced scholars.
