(p.220) 5 Unmasking Family Values in Franco's African Colonies

This chapter explores how the Franco regime depicted the North African Muslims as allies in their struggle for justice. This political thought has placed a parallel to the Spanish Reconquest, and this time, the ones who are playing the role of the infidels are the Republicans. This mythification of the Francoist faction also likened the dictator to the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella, who helped usher the birth of the unified Spain, but also applying more finesse to the roles of the Moors in order not to offend them. This amicable depiction of the Moors can be seen by the numerous cultural productions of the Francoist regimes that were shown in several motion pictures such as Locura de amor.

Keywords:   cultural productions, depiction, Moors, Franco regime, North African Muslims
