Film Days (2nd. 2004. Guadalajara)

In this second meeting, we try to delve into the complex and varied problems of Amateur Cinema, we have once again summoned the historians of the State so that with their authorized reflections they help to give the definitive impulse to an initiative that we consider deserving of all the pampering class.

On this occasion we have five presentations commissioned to as many prestigious Spanish historians: Joaquín Romaguera i Ramió, Joaquín Cánovas Belchí, Juan Bautista Sanz, José Ramón Saiz Viadero, José María Folgar de la Calle and Jon Letamendi Gárate.

In addition to the Papers, there are eleven suggestive communications that significantly broaden the historiographical horizon.
