Representation of Children and Adolescents in Argentine, Colombian and Mexican Cinema

Description / Descripción

This course explores the representation of children and adolescents in contemporary Spanish American cinema from the 1980s to the present. Young characters have been used to explore issues of identity, coming of age, social inequalities, and the impact of major political events. The class will be divided in three parts, which coincide with Spanish America’s major cinemas: Argentina, Colombia, and Mexico. Each part will follow a chronological order so as to encourage students to reflect on each filmmaker’s contribution to the depiction of children and adolescents and the socio-political events represented.
