Contemporary Spanish Screen Media and Responses to Crisis and Aftermath
Conference Room, Ellen Wilkinson Building, University of Manchester 31 March – 1 April 2017
This conference will explore the diverse ways in which Spanish screen media has responded to the recent economic crisis. Since 2008, the economic context of precariousness and its aftermath has brought about shifts in Spanish film production and distribution. These material conditions have resulted in a renewal in the aesthetics of Spanish screen media and in increasingly innovative and experimental forms. Moreover, a new social turn in Spanish cinema, television and new media has re-engaged with questions of social exclusion and belonging, thereby providing a crucial intervention into contemporary political discourses.
