Log-in for full text

This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the third part of this book. The book examines the work of three Spanish women filmmakers, namely Icíar Bollaín, Chus Gutiérrez and Ariadna Pujol in order to analyse the dissonant encounters between immigrants and locals in rural areas of Spain. Implicit in the very idea of bringing together the work of women filmmakers from Hispanic and Lusophone contexts is the notion that these cultural categories must necessarily be viewed in terms of their migratory and transnational histories. Migration, transnationalism and the crossing of borders must be seen as key aspects of contemporary Hispanic and Lusophone cinema. When viewed in terms of migration, transnationalism and the question of borders, what comes to light is the contingency and alterability of that which is apparently solid or is generally assumed to be fixed.
