New Book Added to List

I have added this book to the list in Part One of the Books on Spanish Cinema posts [reasons for creating the list are explained in there]:

Davies, A. (ed.) (2010) –Spain on Screen: Developments in Contemporary Spanish Cinema, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan. ISBN: 9780230236202
This collection stems from a one-day symposium on contemporary Spanish cinema held at Newcastle University in July 2008. I was in the audience at that symposium and there were some very interesting discussions –these articles are mainly extended versions of the papers given that day (with a few written especially for this book).
Introduction: The Study of Contemporary Spanish Cinema –Ann Davies
Audiences, Film Culture, Public Subsidies: The End of Spanish Cinema? –Barry Jordan
Al mal tiempo, buena cara: Spanish Slackers, Time-images, New Media and the New Cinema Law –Rob Stone
Re-visions of Teresa: Historical Fiction in Television and Film –Paul Julian Smith
The Final Girl and Monstrous Mother of El orfanato –Ann Davies
Ensnared Between Pleasure and Politics: Looking for Chicas Bigas Luna, Re-viewing Bambola –Santiago Fouz-Hernández
Javier Bardem: Costume, Crime, and Commitment –Chris Perriam
Children of Exile: Trauma, Memory and Testimony in Jaime Camino’s Documentary Los niños de Rusia (2001) –Julián Daniel Gutiérrez-Albilla
