POTR 4559 – New Course: Contemporary Brazilian Cinema with Eli Carter
MoWe 3:30-4:45PM in New Cabell Hall 056
The objective of this class is to provide a general overview of film production in Brazil since 1990. We will screen and discuss a variety of documentary and feature-length fiction films. Each of the films falls into at least one of five thematic categories: 1) the urban city 2) the underdeveloped countryside 3) identity 4) politics and 5) consumption. With these broader themes in mind, we will pay special attention to the films’ respective portrayals of violence, race, class, and sexuality, particularly as they unfold in a context increasingly marked by globalization and neoliberalism.
