Political Cinema in Latin America


What counts as 'political cinema'? What are the possible relations between cinema and politics, particularly in Latin America? How can cinema not only comment on political issues but also perform politics through practices of production and aesthetic choices that are germane to film as a cultural form? This course explores these and related questions through a survey of landmark Latin American works from the mid-twentieth century to the present. Taught in Spanish.
