Brazilian Culture: Film
This course provides an overview and
critical examination of the Brazilian culture, utilizing Brazilian films as the
gateway to discuss different aspects of Brazilian culture from a variety of
perspectives. Not only will this course examine major historical events that
have impacted the socio-economic, political, and cultural development of
Brazilian society, but it will also explore the present day issues related to
these developments. Class discussions will focus on 20th-century topics such as
youth and urban violence, religion, popular culture and music, the role of
women, ethnicity and cultural identity, and human rights. The course will
expand upon and complement the students’ experiences in Florianopólis,
sharpening their knowledge and cultural sensitivity with (and within) Brazilian
culture. Students will be encouraged and expected to voice their perspectives,
share their experiences, and relate these ideas to the greater context of
Brazilian culture in the classroom.
