Primary Instructor:

This course covers the main elements of critical cinematography analysis and various aspects of the history, ideology and film genre produced in Latin American countries. At the same time we will attempt to understand the reflections on society, economy and politics made by filmmakers of the region, and the use of cinematic discourse to channel the voices of rebellion, dissent and denunciation of the various social movements of the twentieth century. These theoretical and historical elements must be examined carefully in the context of cultural criticism and understanding the cinema as an industry, as a spectacle and as a means of representation of importance to the construction of national identities and cultural geographies.

Course Requirements:

Daily class attendance is required. Students write three academic essays and weekly entries in journals or blogs, and prepare at least one formal presentation. Active participation in daily discussion is expected.

Intended Audience:

Enrollment priority is given to RC students who have successfully passed the Spanish Proficiency Exam the previous term. Both RC and all other UM students can take more than one Readings seminar for credit.

Class Format:

The course meets two times a week and is structured as a seminar with ample discussion among its participants.
