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.
