Course Description

In five of the last six years, the winners of the Academy Award for Best Director have hailed from Mexico. Known affectionately as the tres amigos, Alfonso Cuaron (2013, 2018), Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (2014, 2015, and 2006), and Guillermo del Toro (2017) form part of the vanguard of la nueva onda (the new wave) of Latin American cinema. Since the 1990s, when the new wave began, the technical and artistic merit, as well as the expanded production of Latin American films, have brought global recognition. Other outstanding Latin American directors, with multiple critically acclaimed films, include Chile's Pablo Larrain, Argentina's Pablo Trapero, and Brazil's Fernando Coimbra. We will screen six outstanding and recently released films and discuss their social context and production conditions, their place in the context of la nueva onda, and the critical national and transnational issues they illuminate.  Lecture (plus Questions)Facilitated DiscussionViewing Videso
