Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

This course introduces students to a panoramic view of Latin American film, from silent cinema through Third Cinema to today. Along the way, we will study how Latin American cinema has developed as an industry, as well as how it has functioned as medium to mold and contest what it means to be Latin American. Attention will be placed on the cinematic treatment of regional difference, religion, race, and politics. Films will be supplemented by readings representative of new scholarly approaches to the study of cinema, with a particular focus on industry studies.
