I fantasmi della libertà. La difficile contemporaneità del cinema spagnolo
Freedom’ s Ghosts. Spanish Cinema’ s Difficult Contemporaneity
Spanish cinema has been censored during more than 60 years, from 1913 on, and is generally known abroad because of the work of very few directors, as Buñuel, Saura and Almodóvar. Reflected in the mirror of the cinematographical imagination and recorded by Spanish and non spahish movies, Spain’s image appears as an original combination of few topics and folklorical patterns whose strenght is one of the most important effects of the tutorial presence of censor- ship. Reconstructing the influence of moral and political control on the fortunes and misfortunes of the Spanish movies abroad, the article tries to offer a concrete panorama of this activity, moving from the very beginning but also including recent phenomena, as the snuff movies’ market.
