Whilst looking for books today in the library on Matador fashion or Trajes de Luces, it was advised to me by one of the staff members to watch Blancanieves (2013), as it gave a different perspective from a female Matador. I found this idea really interesting and rented it out over the weekend to watch. A photograph of the copy taken out can be seen below. I am hoping this acts as further inspiration and provides me with an understanding of female Matadors also for my own interests.

Blancanieves is a 2012 Spanish black-and-white silent fantasy drama film written and directed by Pablo Berger. Based on the fairy tale "Snow White" by the Brothers Grimm, the story is set in a romantic vision of 1920s Andalusia. 

"Once upon a time there was a little girl who has never known her mother. She grew up learning the art of her father, a famous bullfighter, but was despised by her evil stepmother. One day she ran away with a troupe of dwarves, and became a legend."

Furthermore, I also came across another film I was reading about online called Matador (1986), film directed by Pedro Almodovar.

"Matador is a 1986 film by Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar about a student matador, Ángel Jiménez, who confesses to murders he did not commit. Themes include sex, death, and religion."
