CINE 385 - Spain and the Role of Censorship in Literature and Film

SPAN 386
403 |Francisco Fernández |MWF 12-1pm |WILL 304

In this course, we will study the way authors, playwrights and filmmakers portray Spanish society during the second half of the twentieth century.  When dealing with works created during the years of Franco’s dictatorship, we will examine the role and the influence censorship had on the making of such works.  Additionally, we will analyze the different take post-Franco authors and filmmakers had on the same era when they were not restricted by the censors.  We will study works by Camilo José Cela, Carmen Martín Gaite, Ana María Matute, Antonio Buero Vallejo, Alfonso Sastre, Fernando Fernán Gómez, Carlos Saura and Luis García Berlanga, among others.
