Hidden Macros

Retrofutures and Virtual Universes in Science Fiction Apropos TRON

Four decades ago, TRON (Steven Lisberger, 1982) revealed a new world. A universe where electronics and the mathematical theory of communication were meant to be seductive to the general public, a world where words like bit, transmission or code would become part of film audiences' vocabulary. This book looks back and reflects on what could have been and what finally was, what remains of that visionary film in contemporary visual culture.


Coordinated by Ángel Sala and Jordi Sánchez-Navarro, Macros ocultas - Hidden Macros features contributions by the coordinators themselves plus Asier Mensuro, Elisa McCausland, Diego Salgado, Joan J. Pons, Marta Salicrú and Ben Cardew.

Topography of Fantastic Genre Films Directed by Women

The cultural and social patterns prevailing in the film industry have traditionally identified certain genres as specific to female sensibilities, entrusting the leadership of projects falling into the realm of horror, science fiction, action or thrillers, for example, to male creators; while, on the other hand, women do not identify fantastic as a genre within their reach.


And although they have traditionally been rara avises, fantastic genre feature films directed by women have sprung up, especially in recent years, giving way to a more than interesting talent pool featuring outstanding names including Karen Arthur, Mary Harron, Claire Denis, Marina de Van, Jennifer Lynch, Kathryn Bigelow, The Wachowski Sisters, Karyn Kusama, Anna Biller, Julia Ducournau and many, many more.


A book coordinated by Mónica García Massagué together with writers Alan Jones, Diego López-Fernández, Domingo López, Heidi Honeycutt, Ángel Sala, Violeta Kovacsics and Jordi Sánchez-Navarro.
