Hispanic Cinema in English
Covers Hispanic Cinema in all of the Spanish-speaking regions: Spain, Latin America, and Hispanics in the U.S. The history of Hispanic cinema is first studied through the development of Spain’s major directors from BuZuel to Almodóvar. This portion of the course establishes an understanding of cinematic techniques and narrative structure which will then be applied to films from a variety of Latin American countries and Hispanic communities. Common themes, such as socio-political structures, repression, gender, and artistic expression, unify and direct the study of cultural contents. Taught in English.
