This chapter presents an overview of the Spanish Civil War and describes different films that tackle the issue. It focuses on fictional feature films produced within Spain and beyond its borders between the 1940s and the early years of the twenty-first century, and attempts to situate the analyses within contemporary debates on Spanish Civil War historiography, the philosophy of history and the relationship between the past and its cinematic representation. The Spanish Civil War began on July 17 1936 when a right-wing rebellion organised from Spanish military garrisons in North Africa and the Canary Islands was launched against a left-leaning Republican government. It ended with the rebels proclaiming victory on April 1 1939.
