This course surveys the various cinematic attempts to counter the politics and social policies of Francisco Franco’s dictatorship in Spain from the 1950’s through the decade following Franco’s death in 1975. Working with loosely defined movements such as Spanish Neorealism, New Spanish Cinema, and The Barcelona School, the course will examine strategies to thwart Franco’s censorship and to reconstruct national identity through cinema.
