A new critical and theoretical approach to a neglected aspect of Pedro Almodovar's cinemaOne of Spain's most celebrated directors, Pedro Almodovar has won international recognition for his dark comedy-dramas like 'Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown', 'All About My Mother' and 'Volver'. Reconceptualising Almodovar's films as theoretical and political resources, this innovative book examines a neglected aspect of his cinema: its engagement with the traumatic past, with subjective and collective memory, and with the ethical and political meanings that result from this engagement. With close readings of Almodovar's films from the 1990s and 2000s, including 'Bad Education' and 'The Skin I Live In', Julian Daniel Gutierrez-Albilla explores how Almodovar's cinema mourns and witnesses the traces of trauma, drawing on theoretical approaches from trauma studies, psychoanalysis, philosophy, film studies and visual studies to suggest that his work proposes an ethical model based on our compassionate relations to others, and envisions a world co-inhabited by plurality and difference.Key featuresExplores how Pedro Almodovar engages with the traumatic pastIncludes close readings of Almodovar's films from the 1990s and 2000sDraws on theoretical approaches from trauma studies, psychoanalysis, philosophy, film studies and visual studies
