SPAN 6820 - [The Architecture of Desire - Luis Bunnuel and Film Theory]

Spring. 4 credits.

Next offered 2014-2015. Conducted in Spanish.

P. Keller.

An advanced graduate course that explores the films of renowned auteur Luis Buñuel in conjunction with different theories of film, aesthetics, and politics. Tracing his work from the inception of surrealism to the final stage of his career in the late 1970s, the course proposes an in-depth study of the Bruñuelian canon, placing his work in dialogue with contemporary debates, and sexuality. In addition to scholarship on Buñuel, we will read works by Kracauer, Deleuze, Tarkovsky, Theweleit, Ranciere, Mulvey, Eisensten, Foucault, and Kizek.
