Spanish is the first language of 23 countries which span two continents and the second language in the United States of America. Using this diversity as a starting point, this subject expands students' understanding of and appreciation for Spanish-speaking cultures and communities through a selection of popular films, which are among the richest sources of cultural information. Using a historical framework, the movies are divided in themes steeped in cultural, historical and political significance. This subject allows students to sharpen their skills in listening, speaking, reading, writing and researching through an integrative learning experience that involves using the Spanish language to examine critically key cultural products and historical moments in the Hispanic World.
