PAREJO, Nekane. The representation of migration and the figure of the Other in the Spanish movie, Poniente (Chus Gutiérrez, 2002). OBS* [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.2, pp.143-153. ISSN 1646-5954.

The immigrant-s shape portrayals in the spanish cinema scene had been sporadic until the premier of Las cartas de Alou (Montxo Armendariz, 1990) where it was given a main character role. As from that moment spanish migratory cinema has a whole series of clichés as unstable working conditions, secrecy, maladjustment, racism etc, that are going to build the Other's character. These are no new features as you only need to evoke the cinematographic images of spanish emigration during the Franco period. After looking through the films that make up this context, two questions raise from the cinematographic field. First of all we can see how the new productions provide for a greater variety and complexity in therelationships between the more and more diverse characteristic features of the settlers. Secondly, what happens when the immigrant arrival country,Spain in this case, was for many decades an emigrant country. To answer these question, we will focus on the film Poniente (Chus Gutiérrez, 2002) and on the guidelines that Eric Landowsky points out to relate to the Other.
