Level B1 or higher


This 20-hour approximation trough the works of these 5 film-makers aims to provide students with a synthetic image of some of the most remarkable milestones of Spanish cinema. We will take a journey visiting some of the most representative works of the authors to establish clear differentiations between their styles and themes, explaining as well the context in which each one is devised and produced. The student will also be provided with additional documentation, such as interviews, critical reviews, teasers, etc., that will complement the screening of movies and fragments in order to boost students’ knowledge and help them construct a critical perspective towards new audiovisual contents. The assessment will be done taking into account the personal works of the students.
