GynoCine: A History of Spanish Women’s Cinema

An open access online database that offers unique resources related to the production of the first two generations of women directors in Spain: that is, filmmakers who worked before and during the Second Republic (the silent era) and whose movies have disappeared, but who have left a significant trace through daguerreotypes, documents, photographs, film posters and reviews in film journals and in newspapers; and a second generation of women who worked during the Franco regime, who suffered censorship and exile and whose movies are only available in the Film Archives in Madrid in VHS or in 35mm format.
