Description

This course examines the historical and socio-cultural contexts of horror films from the region. This course will explore the horror genre’s ability to expose our subconscious fears and how it constructs collective memory, re-enacts national traumas, and speculates on the impact of political and cultural transformation on the individual. Films were selected based on: aesthetic (and entertainment) value; their influence on national and regional cinemas; and the significance of the themes in the narratives. We will consider films from Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Perú, Cuba, Colombia, and Chile. Notable filmmakers and auteurs of the genre (José Mojica Marins, Emilio Vieyra, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Fede Alvarez) will also be discussed in terms of their distinctive formal and thematic contributions.

This course counts as elective credit for the Spanish minor.

Class Format:

Fall 2021: During certain periods of the term, we will have an “in-person day” with large discussions about the course content; during other periods of the term, we will have an "online day" where students collaborate in small-group activities via Canvas and Zoom.
