Summary note:
With 15 essays by leading scholars of Spanish film, this work casts light on the manifold meanings, methods and influences of Spanish screen performance, from the silent era to the present day. In doing so, the book provides new readings of the work of significant Spanish actors and filmmakers. The fine-grained study of acting in each chapter also provides a means of exploring broader questions surrounding Spanish film practices, culture and society. The book is intended for both students and scholars of Spanish film alike, as well as to those more broadly interested in the history of screen acting.
