Summary/Abstract: Andalusia’s rich tradition and sunny landscapes invariably attract the attention of filmmakers from the very beginnings of cinema, which in turn has been both reflecting and actively shaping the region’s cultural images that are not infrequently entangled into various socio-political dependencies. The presented analysis of over three hundred feature films from the years 1910–2021 shows changes that have been taking place in the way Andalusia is depicted: from folkloric clichés of españolada treating the South as the metonymy of the entire Spanish state and an exotic attraction, to a mocking attitude towards the foregoing formula, and instead searching for realism and the local identity, or utilising regional locations merely as a backdrop for narratives on something else.
