    Cinema and Geography: Geographic Space, Landscape and Territory in the Film Industry
    (2009-01) Gámir Orueta, Agustín; Manuel Valdés, Carlos
    This work presents a theoretical and analytical approach to the relationship between cinema and geographic space. First, special cinematographic qualities are differentiated from those of other means of geographic representation, at the same time identifying the differences between real space and film space. Subsequently, the main contributions from various geographic subdisciplines are examined, identifying which paths of study should be followed in the relationship between geography and film. A third, more analytical part of the content looks at the specific problems of film locations, the way landscape and nature are presented on screen, the use of cinema as a political/territorial instrument, and the economic repercussions created by the film industry.
