Featuring Post-National Spain

This chapter examines the theme of travel in Spanish films, with particular emphasis on how Spanish cinema emerged as a venue for offering trips and destinations. It considers the itineraries of choice in this burgeoning tripping enterprise in Spanish cinema, such as the domestic ‘inter-autonomic’ trip between the different geographical and cultural territories of Spain; the Western outing, or ‘inning,’ mainly sold as a return to Europe and the West after so many years of absence; the African visit, with the distant traveller often showing up at home in a sort of reversed, stationary voyage; and the Transatlantic journey to and from Latin America. In order to theorize all these cinematic odysseys of sorts, the chapter looks at the old and historically Spanish practice of ‘transhumance’ and shows that this travelling philosophy permeates Spanish cinematic voyages in the post-modern and post-national periods.
