Edited by leading authorities on the subject, and bringing together a stellar cast of contributors, this detailed appraisal of Pedro Almodóvar’s unique cinematic art examines the themes, style, and aesthetics of his oeuvre and locates it in the context of the profound cultural transformations in Spain since the 1970s.

  • Brings together a stellar cast of contributors from across the globe  including recognized and established specialists as well as talented younger scholars
  • Features contributions by Spanish film historians, where studies of Almodóvar’s work have been underrepresented in the academic literature
  • Deploys new approaches to the analysis of film authorship by exploring contextual issues such as Almodóvar’s transnational appeal and the political dimensions of his works
  • Traces the director’s fruitful collaborations in the areas of art and design, fashion and music

Keywords: Film Studies, Spanish film, Franco, Spain, melodrama, women on the verge, la movida, bad education, volver
