  • Overview

    The course will explore a selection of films and short narratives by Spanish contemporary women writers and film directors, embracing a wide range of relational and psychological themes and narrative approaches to both genres. While the authors selected belong to different generations, their work reveals a surprising similarity in thematic concerns as well as a keen interest in experimenting with literary and cinematic devices. Controversial and distinctive views on genre, gender, and creativity will be examined within theories of writing and seeing.
