While approaches to Latin American cinema neglect the relationship of the region with Spain as former colonial center, this unit, taught in English, will introduce you to Spanish and Latin American film studies exploring the tensions, negotiations, and complex flows of influence from a transatlantic angle. Comprising history, theory and criticism through the exploration of 'national' cinema industries, we will explore sites of production and circulation, by examining the role coproductions and film festivals play in the conceptualisation and consumption of Latin American and Spanish cinema. This unit offers a regional overview and delves into case studies of the history of film production.
