SPA 3600 - Latin American Cinema

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): SPA 2320 or LAS 2860 or Permission of instructor

Description: This 3000-level course, a survey of recent Latin American film, is interdisciplinary and crosscultural, emphasizing the socio-economic and political issues (race, gender, sex, and identity issues) central to the development of Latin American cinema. This course is suitable for nonspeakers of Spanish and is designed to introduce students to the cinematic work of a number of Latin American film artists or movements by discussing them from a variety of perspectives (narrative, rhetoric, aesthetics, film language). This course is designed to heighten perceptual skills by viewing films and increase critical understanding of the ways films function as visual discourse. Students in the SPA major program at the time the course is taken will complete all work in Spanish.
