This chapter examines how oppositional filmmakers in Spain presented alternative views to the official state narrative during the dictatorship's latter years, focusing on the work of Carlos Saura, particularly La caza/The Hunt and El jardín de las delicias/Garden of Delights. It looks at how filmmakers, unable to deal directly with their subject matter due to censorial constraints, employed metaphorical and allegorical filmmaking to comment obliquely on the conflict.
