Hispanic Cultures in Cinema
A study of Spanish and/or Latin American cultures and their representation in films. Emphasis on critical theories and cultural contexts of representation.
This course aims to examine distinct film traditions from the Hispanic world and to offer an opportunity for reflecting on the representations of Hispanic cultures in cinema. Different cultural, social and political issues examined throughout the course include: transnational movements, migration and globalisation; formation of cultural identities in border cultures; the reconstruction of the past and the ways of dealing with traumatic historical experiences of war, exile, or dictatorship.
