Course Spotlight

Contemporary Spanish Cinema

Department of Modern and Classical Languages
This course studies the development of Spanish cinema over the last four decades. Students view films by the first generation of Spanish cineastes, who started their work in the 1960s, and another group of young cineastes that began their work in the period of the transition to democracy. The course focuses on filmmakers of the new generation that emerged in the last decade of the 20th century and the first years of the new millennium. While examining the development of Spanish cinema during the said time period, students also scrutinize the different components in analyzing a feature film - such as film form, points of view, camera angles, shots and photography - in order to augment their knowledge of a film's composition.
