In this class, students will join others in the full time program Arts of Urgency to view contemporary Latin American cinema-- including fiction, documentary, and animation-- and analyze these films in the historical and cultural contexts surrounding their production. Students will build analytical skills as they gain an understanding of how diverse filmmakers using a wide range of aesthetic strategies have responded to neoliberalism and democratization, and represented social memory and transformation throughout the region.  Students will complete structured journal entries on each film screened, and participate in discussion of each work. 

The CRN for this course is 20290, and will show in registration as a 2-credit option of the program Arts of Urgency. 

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:

Animation, History, cross cultural studies, media arts & studies, and education
