Salto al vacío and Historias del Kronen are products of a cultural environment which reflects the transition from the creative generation of la movida of the 1980s to the new writers and filmmakers of the 1990s. This chapter explores the presence of punk aesthetics in Salto al vacío and Historias del Kronen in the theoretical context of New Punk Cinema. Salto al vacío offers a portrait of the hopelessness of Basque youth. Historias del Kronen displays a musical preference on the part of its protagonists for bakalao or máquina music. It is important to conclude, therefore, that while generational conflict is nothing new, what is unique in Salto al vacío and Historias del Kronen is the way these young writers and filmmakers reappropriate certain aspects of punk ideology.

Editors: Lisa Shaw and Rob Stone
