Barcelona is one of the world's most beautiful cities. A permanent showcase of the work of acclaimed architect Antoni Gaudi, it also has a long and rich cinematic legacy. Great directors from all over the world - among them Woody Allen, Pedro Almodovar, and Michelangelo Antonioni - have set their films there. World Film Locations: Barcelona is the first book of its kind to explore the rich cinematic history of this seductive Catalonian city. The illuminating essays collected here cover essential themes of the city's cinematic history, including the origins of cinema in Barcelona; the role of the Ciutat Vella (Old City) as a film set; the influential Barcelona School of the 1960s; the film presence of Gaudi and his work; changing attitudes and urban renewal before and after the 1992 Olympics; and the emergence of a new generation of female filmmakers who have made Barcelona the center of their cinematic explorations. This book will be a welcome addition to the libraries of anyone enchanted by the beauty of Barcelona, whether in person or on the big screen.
