Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Emerging as one of the most exciting, fascinating, and special kinds of filmmaking in the world, Spanish cinema has been producing excellent directors, actors, and films for decades, including during the dark times of the Franco regime. With directors (Pedro Almodovar), actors and actresses (Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz), and films (Abre los ojos and Alatriste) amassing popularity, the outlook for Spanish cinema appears brighter than ever, and it is deservedly winning numerous fans abroad.

Historical Dictionary of Spanish Cinema provides an understanding of the role Spanish cinema has played in film history through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on producers, directors, film companies, actors, and films.

About the Author

Alberto Mira is reader in film studies at Oxford Brookes University in Oxford, United Kingdom, where he teaches courses on Spanish cinema, classical Hollywood narration, and stars and audiences. He has published extensively on Francoist cinema, gender in Spanish cinema, Ivan Zulueta, and Pedro Almodovar.
