Abstract

This book section is a translation into Spanish of an article first published in English in 2006. It looks at the work of Isabel Coixet and her persona as a filmmaker, situating both as part of a phenomenon within Spanish cinema which is old and new at the same time: the movement of its products and talent beyond the national borders and the transnational territories provided by the official languages (the hegemonic Castilian but also Catalan, Basque, or Galician). A 'shared' language,Castilian, and culture have permitted the passage through a transnational super-highway for stars and other cinema professionals among Castilian-speaking communities (...) as part of a cultural and economic strategy that tends to focus on the interests of Spain and Castilian. There is, however, another road only occasionally traveled and this is the one that Coixet has chosen. Some of her films have been conceived and consumed transnationally, shot in English with a mainly Anglo-Saxon cast and set in English-speaking communities (be it North America or the middle of the Atlantic.. These films are thus traveling another road -the road to American cinema. Both Coixet and her oeuvre engage with the demands and strategies of globalization and the attendant issues of space and place, but they can also be read as forms of resistance to narrowly prescriptive ideas of national cinema and labels such as Spanish/ Catalan/ European / Woman filmmaker.
