Films and genres such as those mentioned above largely avoided critical engagement with contemporary issues, and it was this degree of disengagement which eventually led to a reaction amongst more socially committed film-makers, who looked to Italian neorealism to provide the model for a reinvigorated Spanish film culture. Here, student film-makers were able to view foreign films otherwise banned throughout the rest of Spain.

This eventually led to the founding of the left-wing journal Objectivo , in The journal also helped to organise a First National Film Congress, which was held in Salamanca, in May of the same year, and at which Italian neorealism was extensively debated. During the s Italian neorealism provided an aesthetic model for Spanish film-makers opposed to the normative superficiality and aesthetic redundancy of the Francoist cinema, and, in some, but by no means all cases, to the regime itself.
However, the existence of political censorship meant that the more leftist neorealist inspired cinema which developed in Spain during the s was forced to adopt a clandestine, often sardonic, posture, and to draw away from a more directly political agenda. Despite these constraints, the influence of Italian neorealism did, nevertheless, lead to the emergence of a number of more committed realist Spanish films during the s.
As the examples given above suggest, during this period Italian neorealism was regarded, by both right and left, as a fitting model upon which a reinvigorated national cinema could be built. In addition to its perceived value to Falangists such as Escuderos, Italian neorealism also furnished a model for a Francoist Government, which, during the s, attempted to portray Spain as an enlightened, though traditionally conservative European nation, and Francoist officials hoped that support for a Spanish national cinema based on an internationally renowned and prestigious film movement, would advance such ambitions.
The fact that neorealism had emerged from another latin country, and one with a fascist past, also led Government officials to believe that Spanish neorealism could be relied upon to play its part within a more general exercise of officially authorised national projection.
However, Los Olvidados was immediately banned, and remained largely unknown to Spanish film-makers during the early s. However, Viridiana was quickly condemned as blasphemous by the Catholic Church, and, like Los Olvidados , also banned. Nevertheless, and despite such bans, it is ironic that, at the same time that a democratic Italian State was actively attempting to suppress neorealism, the Spanish dictatorship was encouraging its growth and development.
As with the new German cinema of the s, new Spanish cinema was promoted by the state as evidence that modern Spain was a European nation with a vibrant cultural life. However, such promotion required an easing of the regulatory constraints which had led to the banning of Los Olvidados and Viridiana , and this strategy was not risk free for the government. The period of liberalisation which accompanied the appearance of the new Spanish cinema came to an end in , in the aftermath of a political scandal involving government ministers, and student revolts inspired by the events of May Between and rigorous censorship was again restored, and government aid to filmmakers severely cut.

After the socialist election victory in censorship was further reduced, and more ground-breaking films emerged. Feature films dealing more critically with contemporary Spanish history began to appear shortly after the death of Franco in Just as the Heimatfilme of the s located the source of authentic German national identity in the rural, so, in Francoist Spain , films which depicted rural life also established the Catholic, conservative countryside as the font of a national character which was also epitomised by the ruling regime.
However, a leftist appropriation of the rural proved to be more problematic within a Spanish cinema which, until as recently as the mid s, had commonly relied on representations of provincial, agrarian life in order to legitimate fascist ideology. Consequently, when the post-Franco oppositional cinema did turn to the depiction of ruralist subject matter it did so from a mainly negative perspective, emphasising the extent to which rural culture had influenced and nurtured fascism.
Furtivos depicts a rural world in which acts of incest, murder and brutality occur, if not routinely, then with a degree of inevitability.
