Spanish filmmaker Vicente Aranda is best-known for bringing Juan Marse's novels to life on the big screen. His films are almost always politically charged with the aftereffects of Franco's regime and he is well-known for courageously exploring difficult social issues. He also doesn't balk in his frank examinations of sexuality as can be seen in his most internationally successful film Amantes (Lovers) (1990). A founding member of the Barcelona School, Aranda started out co-directing Brillante Porvenir (Brilliant Future) with Roman Gubern in 1964. The following year, Aranda soloed with Fata Morgana, a drama filled with metaphorical political commentary. His adaptations of Marse include Si te dicen que cai (If They Tell You I've Fallen) (1989). In 1996, Aranda paid epic tribute to the women who bravely sacrificed their lives during the Spanish Civil War with Libertarias. Like many of his films, it starred Victoria Abril.
