Mexican Cinema in the Era of Globalization

In this course we focus on the polemic quality of Mexican contemporary cinema, as we study this cinema in relation to the scholarship on globalization. We study how contemporary Mexican films and directors participate in coding, creating and reformulating images of Mexico and the world into the screen. Rather than concentrating on how contemporary films represent Mexican identity through a selection of films, we discuss rather how these films point to a situated `global' film making.
