Chapter 3 begins with a survey of the youth genre in Spain, a topic little studied in comparison with the US. It goes on to suggest that two titles, once more the object of bitter attack from Spanish critics and politicians, stage an unexpected working through of vital social issues for their youthful audiences. Thus one mystery narrative mounts an elaborate allegory of the historical memory debate, even obliquely alluding to the controversy over the excavation of mass graves of war victims. Another high school drama, hitherto held to be exploitative and even responsible for teen riots, explores youthful homosexuality and immigration in ways that clearly qualify as ethically serious, as well as politically progressive
