SPAN 087. Cruzando fronteras: migración y transnacionalismo en el cine mexicano

This course studies Mexican films and documentaries that engage issues of migration and transnationalism. The aim is to understand how these cinematic genres portray the complexities of cultural identity and the social and interpersonal struggles caused by displacement and globalization. We will also look at how some Mexican communities have been transformed by the consequences of migration to the U.S. In addition, the course will incorporate border literature and Mexican music that add different dimensions to the themes explored in the course.
