Description: The aim of this course is to examine the polyvalent character of French-speaking cinema that is termed as “Francophone.” We will explore issues of the universal application of “Francophone family” that mainly includes African, Caribbean, and French Canadian films, and will investigate the case of French-speaking Europe other than France. We will closely examine the aesthetic and theoretical questions that each Francoophone cinema raises in search of a cinematic discourse along with questions of production, distribution, and exhibition. Weekly film screenings. Knowledge of French is encouraged but not necessary. The course will be taught in English.

Description: In the decades preceding the Civil War, Spanish avant gardes are represented by three larger-than-life figures: exiled film director Luis Buñuel, obsessed with the feminine, with his homeland and its supposedly eternal myths; Federico García Lorca, poet and playwright of Andalucía and its mythified past, assassinated on the eve of the conflict; and Salvador Dalí who lives the tenets of both Surrealism and capitalism in the flesh. Each leaves a legacy that extends beyond the borders of Spain and beyond the end of the twentieth century. This course explores Surrealism and Spain, from the 1920s on, embedding cutting-edge works in broader questions of identity and possible threats to an emerging nation in a continent, a world, and an ethos caught between tradition and modernity. Includes films, art, essays, plays, poetry. Course taught in Spanish.
