3 editions published in 1998 in Spanish and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the world of 1950s Spanish art cinema, Carlos Saura keeps some very prestigious company with other noted Spanish directors-- Berlanga, Bardem, and Luis Buñuel. In the beginning, Saura labored under the iron censorship of the fascist Franco regime, but he later won international recognition for his portrayals of life stunted by political oppression. In later films, such as the Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and Flamenco, Saura's talent for injecting his films with assurance and vigor, punctuated by unforgettable moments of poetry, shines forth. In this program, Saura discusses his filmmaking techniques, and how, by incorporating a mixture of incisiveness, humor, action, and romance, he conveys the gist of Spanish and Latin culture to world audiences
