Section Information for Spring 2015
This course offers an historical survey of the films produced across the Latin American regions from the introduction of sound in the late 1920s to the contemporary period. We will be taking a special look at the film movement known as "New Latin American Cinema," or films from the 1960s to the 1980s that were considered “revolutionary,” both for their engagement with social and political themes like poverty, racism, gender, and violence and for their departure from conventional film genres inherited from the Hollywood industries. The direct influence of the New Latin American Cinema on contemporary filmmaking is an allied focus of the course. The survey covers a range of film across the diverse regions of Latin America, including Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, and Cuba. Students will be introduced to basic concepts of film analysis and major trends in film studies.
