Gender and sexuality in post-Franco cinema
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Spanish cinema is known for producing more explicit images (of both sex and violence) than most other contemporary European cinemas. Francoism operated on the basis of highly traditional and retrograde concepts of gender and sexuality. This chapter seeks to explore representations in the context of post-Franco cinema. It considers the impact of the so-called Movida on cultural and cinematic trends. The chapter focuses particularly on the increased profile of women both behind and in front of the camera. It attempts to deal with representations of patriarchy and masculinity and the contradictory images these can produce. The chapter explores the evidence of a more radical questioning of traditionally-erected gender boundaries and the promotion of a more eclectic range of models for sexual orientation and personal and family relationships.
