FS 348 - History of Spanish Cinema

This course offers a critical overview and a general approach to diverse filmic creations that have been shaping the history of Spanish cinema, from early 20th century avant-garde to the present. We will introduce several emblematic filmmakers and we will analyze a selection of their movies, always in connection with the political, social and cultural context in which they were filmed and viewed. Some of the recurrent topics of this course will be dictatorship and censorship, immigration and exile, women’s roles in contemporary Spain, globalization vs marginalization, and social commitment.
