Abstract

My chapter focuses on two Spanish films that depict pain experiences alongside representations of disability: Insensibles (2012) directed by Juan Carlos Medina, and La herida (2013), directed by Fernando Franco. Examining the films’ depictions of Borderline Personality Disorder and congenital analgesia, the chapter queries the psychosomatic and the Cartesian dualism that informs definitions of disability.
