HIST 3816 - Latin American History at the Movies


How has the popular cinema industry portrayed Latin American History? What can we learn from these depictions? In this class we watch and analyze feature films from the United States and Latin America which grapple with various events and issues in Latin America. Through these films, we both critically analyze historical developments in Latin America as well as the assumptions and biases which go into the making of a film on Latin America. Through this process, we develop a deeper appreciation for the complexities which embody Latin America and the problems which the region faces.
