FMS 542: Latin American Film (3)

The course explores the national cinemas and film industries of various nations in Latin America, as well as films made by Indigenous and Chicano/a filmmakers. Films are analyzed both as artistic works (formal qualities, cinematic styles, and influences) and as documents that provide windows to the socio-historical context of the nation. The course focuses on the political-economic factors surrounding the production of Latin American national cinema (the role of the state, coproductions, film markets). Prerequisite: Junior status. May be taken as FMS 842. There will be additional requirements for graduate students taking FMS 842. LEC
