One Hour Intro/ Film and Spain’s Transition to Democracy

This talk will provide some useful background context to the exciting explosion of filmmaking in Spain that followed the death of General Franco in 1975 and that is the focus of this year’s ¡Viva! retrospective screenings. Topics that will be covered include: political filmmaking; the abolition of censorship; women filmmakers; gender and sexuality on screen; politics and popular forms; regional and national identities.

Led by Dr Andy Willis, University of Salford and HOME’s Senior Visiting Curator: Film, and Dr Carmen Herrero, Manchester Metropolitan University.
