Through the lens of border crossing, we will explore a variety of topics in Contemporary Spanish/Latin American Cinema, such as immigration and emigration narratives in times of globalization, new localisms, and the emergence of glocal vs. national films. A fluid conceptualization of the border will also allow us to explore how Contemporary Spanish/Latin American Cinema talks about gender, race, nationalisms, immigration, history, and transgressions. Beyond the thematic focus, the main objective of this course will be to gain a general understanding of film theory, cinematographic language, and film criticism.
