The central theme of the child and the monster is used to examine the relationship of the self to the past, and to cinema.

Focusing on the films from the 1950s to the present day, the book explores religious films, musicals, art-house horror, science fiction, social realism and fantasy in Spanish film and includes reference to Erices The Spirit of The Beehive, del Toros Pans Labyrinth, Mañass El Bola and the Marisol films. The book draws on a century of filmmaking in Spain and also intersects with recent revelations concerning the horrors of the Spanish past. The child is a potent motif for the loss of historical memory and for its recuperation through cinema.This book is suitable for scholars and undergraduates working in the area of Spanish cinema, Spanish cultural studies, and cinema studies.
