    Abstract

    Twenty-first-century Spain is interrogating the past and collective memory. At the turn of the millennium and the foundation of the Spain's Association for the Recovery of Historical Memory (ARMH) in 2000, numerous literary works, testimonies and films were produced around the themes of the Civil War and its aftermath. In recent years, there has been a surge in narratives around national collective memory, in particular about Spain's African colonies. In films produced during the dictatorship, the Latin American characters were usually conforming to notions of Hispanidad, the idea of a cultural identity between Spain and Hispanic America. The expansion into the African territory offered ways to heal the internal identity crisis of what became known as the ‘Disaster of 1898', or the final loss of the last colonies in the Americas.
