This volume examines the films of Hispanic and Lusophone women filmmakers from the 1930s to the present day. This edited collection establishes productive connections between film practices across these geographical areas by identifying common areas of concern on the part of these female filmmakers.

The volume focuses on the aesthetic, theoretical and socio-historical analyses to question the manifest or latent gender and sexual politics that inform and structure the emerging number of cinematic productions by women filmmakers in Portugal, Spain, Latin America and the US.

With a combination of emerging and internationally renowned scholars from the UK, the US, Spain and Latin America, the volume documents and interprets a fascinating corpus of films made by Hispanic and Lusophone women and proposes research strategies and methodologies that can expand our understanding of socio-cultural and psychic constructions of gender and sexual politics. An essential resource to rethink notions of gender identity and subjectivity, the volume is a unique contribution to Spanish and Latin American Film Studies and Film Studies.
