SPAN 6646 The "Eye" of Latin American Film (Spring: 3 )
This course focuses on recent Latin American cinema in order to explore the aesthetic and critical trends of its most recent films. How are those films shaped by always changing political circumstances? What do they tell us about Latin America's present political realities? We will see films and read texts by Gonzalo Aguilar, Carlos Reygadas, Fernando Solanas and Robert Stam among others. This class requires that in addition to critical readings students watch movies outside class time. Screenings will be on Wednesday evenings.
