About The Book

This book explores the work of Elias Querejeta, Spain's most important and political producer, through a particular emphasis on the representation of landscape in his films. In doing so, the book examines the ways in Spanish history has been shaped by geographical change since the 1960s.


'This is a profound and engaging study of a complex and fascinating subject, rich with radical, informed analysis of Spanish history, landscape and cinema. Whittaker's auteurist approach to Elias Querejeta, one of Spain's most illustrious producers, is original and provocative, as is his focus on space in key Spanish films.' Professor Rob Stone, Swansea University Whittaker's book makes a unique contribution to the field of film studies through its intimate exploration of landscape and space in Spanish cinema... Scholars of Spanish cinema and those interested in discourses of filmic space will greatly appreciate Whittaker's book and the new, spatial language of cinematic visuality it vividly unfolds. - Davina Quinlivan, Cinema Journal vol 52
