SPAN 6671 Introduction to Hispanic Film (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

It's easy to watch a movie, but can you see it? This course uses films of several genres from Spain and Latin America to teach students to view visual culture intelligently. Principles of mise en scne, sound, narrative games, and techniques of propaganda and horror are among the components studied. Students build on the skills acquired in Contextos (RL395), learning to apply them to visual media. Films include Fresas y Chocolate, Todo Sobre Mi Madre, Como Agua Para Chocolate, and others.
