Span Am Film New Millennium
Three-week course, second session
Between 2000 and 2011, a young Spanish American film emerges, taking at times a minimalist point of view to narrate individual stories with a subjective tone, or continuing a tradition of the historical panorama to present national tragedies that occurred in the last two or three decades. This course will focus on this new type of film from different countries, with such titles as Historias mínimas, Los colores de la montaña, El casamiento, La mirada invisible, Cosas insignificantes, Cinco días sin Nora, Mal día para pescar, La vida útil, A un metro de ti, Contracorriente, among others. (.5 unit)
Required text: Films to be seen at lab and additional bibliography to be included in the course website at Middlebury.
