Spanish Cinema from the Transition to the Present


Overview of Spanish cinema, from transition to our present days. Having undergone dramatic transformation in past years, Spanish film offers privileged area to study main features, novelties, contradictions, and tensions. Analyzes two chronological phases: the mid 70s to late 80s, characterized by intense cinematic negotiation with immediate past that unveils cracks and violences of normalizing erasure proposed from the political institutions; and the 90s until the present, a period marked by Spanish film's entrance in the global market, with its identitarian reassessment and emphasis in new pressing issues such as immigration, memory, and gender violence. Offered through Duke in Madrid program.
