With this 20-hour introduction to the Spanish Civil War trough audiovisual Spanish productions, we seek to provide the students with a summarized though broad perspective of the social evolution during the years of the War and the multiple perspectives and ideologies that the conflict has been seen through. Additionally, we aim to boost a reflection process on the picture that Spanish movies take of the Spanish society and customs, as well as appealing to the students’ critical thinking. This course is completed with the screening of capital works that will offer the pupils a complete tour to understand the importance of the Spanish Civil War, its impact on society and the personal perspectives of the main Spanish filmmakers.
