Abstract In 2007 Paulo Cherchi Usai apocalyptically announced ‘The Death of Cinema’, a startling reaction to a receding cultural history threatened by the loss of celluloid and the advancement of the digital. The text itself is framed by the question its author poses in the introduction, “Why is our culture so keen on accepting the questionable benefits of digital technology as the vehicle for a new sense of history?” (1) The films En construcción (José Luis Guerín, 2001), Bucarest, la memòria perduda (Albert Solé, 2008), Nedar (Carla Subirana, 2008) and Tren de sombras (Guerín, Train of Shadows, 1997) tentatively explore this changing status of the moving image and its capacity to explore and engage with this “new sense of history” posited by Usai.
