This book traces the development of a racialized vision, which was prominently expressed through Gypsy-face and racialized characters in early to mid-twentieth-century Spanish folkloric musical comedy films. The expression of race through the technological development of film articulated Spanish modernity’s most vivid concerns. Folkloric film has its origins in a range of racialized histories, story cycles, and media and performance practices. The chapter then provides a brief outline of some racial terminology and historical debates that supported much of the ideological work of Spanish film before the 1950s.
