The intention of this book, which is structured into three different sections, is to present an x-ray of what could be called the regeneration of the creative landscape of the Spanish cinema in the 1990's. Therefore, we chose the perspective of directors and present - from their point of view - the different approaches that they propose in the texts. The time frame we used ranges from January 1990 until June 1997 (seven and a half years) - a time frame in which one could witness a continuous and prolific appearance of debuting directors which have stirred the interest of the media within short time and - in many occasions - also the interest of a young audience. An audience that is eager to follow the national cinema with novel indulgence and real interest.
The three sections that constitute this book are: A) a detailed historiographic study of the characteristics of the phenomenon; B) an extensive central part that contains 15 interviews with directors and C) an index of directors who debuted during the mentioned time. So, what we propose is a horizontal approach to the process, 15 vertical entries from the individual perspectives of every interviewed director and an extensive biofilmographic cartography that unites the totality of the list.
