The Project on the Post-War Spanish Cinema rescues two screenplays about the novel by Wenceslao Fernández Flórez Volvoreta
The 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, Plan Nacional de I+D+i 2013-2015, Mineco – Gobierno de España) rescues a script consisting of the adaptation of the novel by Wenceslao Fernández Flórez Volvoreta. The film was not done but was going to be directed by Francisco Regueiro, filmmaker already studied by the Project in a recent book.
In addition, in collaboration with the University of Lyon, where the Grupo Estudos Audiovisuais participated last year in the organization of Jornada Wenceslao Fernández Flórez: Cinéma et Littérature linked to the Project, is given to learn another script by Rafael Moreno Alba corresponding to another attempt to adapt the novel.
Volvoreta was made into a film by José Antonio Nieves Conde in 1976, but the existence of these two attempts demonstrates the strong relationship between the work of the Galician writer and Spanish cinema. The Project currently works on an analysis of these texts.
We must also add the analysis and disclosure that we are making of the movie Tragedia muy muy íntima, an unknown short film made in 1951 by José María Zabalza based on an original idea of Wenceslao Fernández Flórez, as memory of the Instituto de Investigaciones y Experiencias Cinematográficas.
The appearance of all this unpublished material is an important achievement of the Research Project.
