This course offers a survey of contemporary Spanish cinema from 1975, a key year in the country’s recent history, which marks the end of dictatorship and the beginning of a long and tumultuous period of democratic transition. Drawing on introductory film theory and a variety of films from the period, students will explore the ways in which Spanish cinema represents, shapes and challenges political, cultural, and social events. Among the topics we will cover are the following: Spanish cinema’s relationship to La Movida, historical memory, other European cinemas and the auteur traditions.
