Fall 2010 not offered
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 Bu˝uel, 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.
Interpretation: This course is intended to develop the ability to understand, evaluate, and contextualize meaningful forms, mainly Spanish filmic texts, through the medium of the Spanish language.
This course familiarizes students with the importance of interpretation to the acquisition of knowledge and understanding. Through the study of Spanish cinema, students are encouraged to develop their own interpretive skills as well as to analyze and evaluate approaches to interpretation employed by filmic texts and other materials used in the class.
