Spain and Its Cinema: A Different Mode of Representation
SPAN 252
Spring 2008 not offered
Crosslisting: COL 242, IBST 308

In this course we will study some of the most important Spanish movies from the 1950s to the present. Special emphasis will be placed on such key directors as Bunuel, Saura, Erice, or Almodovar. In some instances we will study a film in its entirety; in others, we will focus on segments or scenes from different movies, always with the intention of understanding how Spanish modes of representing reality through cinema differ from Hollywood's. Theoretical readings will be assigned to provide students the conceptual tools necessary to analyze cinematic texts.
