Title Portrayal of the journalist in Spanish cinema from 1990 to 2010 Summary The journalist is a regular character in Spanish films, and analysing this role is fundamental in learning more about the profession. The aim of this research is to identify the profile of the journalist in cinema from 1990 to 2010, two decades of drastic changes in the modes of communication in our country. In its empirical phase, one of the fundamental contributions can be found in the recovery of Morphology of the Folktale (1928), by Russian Folklorist-Scholar Vladimir Propp, which can be used to establish the characteristics of the reporter from a structuralist point of view. In this book, the conclusion reached is that the heroes are those in charge of serious journalism, whereas the villains, mainly women, are the stars of the television 'boom' with a predominance of morbidity and deceit on the small screen. Keywords Vladimir Propp, Spanish cinema, cinema of the 90s, role of the journalist, structuralism.
