Screening Youth in Contemporary Latin American Cinema
SPAN 280
Spring 2015
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: LAST 280

This course will examine some of the most important Latin American films to emerge in the past three decades that have cast children and teenagers as protagonists. As such, this seminar will focus on a wide array of issues such as poverty, education, cultural identity, historical memory, national and regional belonging, revolution, political activism and repression, immigration, violence, sexuality, and marginalization. Students will explore the aesthetic and social dynamics at play in the representation of young protagonists and develop interpretative filmic skills through an exploration of the connections between the technical composition of the works and the social, political, and cultural contexts that they address.
