Latin American and Spanish Cinema: Women, Men, and Gender

Presiding Officer: 
Hector Cavallari, Mills College

The focus of this special session is an intersectional examination of different cultural and ideological aspects of Spanish and Latin American films that deal with issues, themes, and topics concerning women, men, and gender from the 1960s to the present. These aspects include the relations between artistic, social, and political parameters in cinematic representations of sex-and-gender relations; gender, social justice, and human rights issues; and changes in Hispanic women’s socio-cultural status.
