HISP 155 - Coming of Age in Latin American and LatinX Film

Contemporary Latin American and U.S. Latino filmmakers often focus on childhood and adolescence. What is at stake in these representations of children, youth and the process of coming of age? What does reimagining childhood and youth have to do with thinking about the future of a community? And how is film uniquely suited to such explorations? This course analyzes representations of childhood and adolescence from Latin American and Latinx filmmakers to see how these films not only describe personal pasts and identities, but also document traumatic collective histories, and work to create a cultural memory.
