Vía Láctea Editorial has just published the books Muerte de un ciclista (Juan Antonio Bardem, 1955): una firme mirada opositora and Sonrisas y lágrimas de España: esperpento, humor negro y costumbrismo en el cine español, carried out within the Research Project Towards a reconsideration of postwar culture: analysis of the Modes of Representation in Spanish cinema (1939-1962) from Wenceslao Fernández Flórez’s mark (CSO2012-34648. Mineco – Gobierno de España).
The books are the second and the third number of Cuadernos de Cine y Cultura Posbélica Española. The collection was created from the Research Project with the collaboration of Fundación Wenceslao Fernández Flórez and began last year with the publication of El malvado Carabel: literatura y cine popular antes y después de la Guerra Civil.
Muerte de un ciclista (Juan Antonio Bardem, 1955): una firme mirada opositora was written by José Luis Castro de Paz and Héctor Paz Otero, and it is a study of the film by Juan Antonio Bardem from an innovative perspective, emphasizing the importance of the confluence of the Hollywood cinema with formal and semantic aspects received from the Spanish films of the previous decade.
On the other hand, Sonrisas y lágrimas de España: esperpento, humor negro y costumbrismo en el cine español is coordinated by Nekane Zubiaur and Carmen Arocena, and contains several studies of relevant researchers -members of the project and external contributors- about the essence of esperpento cinematográfico. The book is a study of the deformation process whereby certain folkloric tendencies resulted in filmic translation of one of the major streams of Spanish art. In addition to the coordinators, they collaborate in the book Santos Zunzunegui, Íñigo Larrauri, Asier Aranzubía, Alejandro Montiel and José Luis Castro de Paz.
