SN 214 Contemporary Latin America through Film 3 cr.  (3-0-0)

In its “creative treatment of actuality” (Grieson), film selects, imagines, and re-considers stories to bring to light concerns about racial tensions, ethnicity, environmental problems, memory, identity, and gender and class divisions. This course offers, through the study of a selection of Latin American films from 2000 to the present, a multidisciplinary perspective of the social histories and contemporary lives of a diverse range of Latin American populations.
