Cinematic representations of children and childhood are simultaneously romanticised and fraught with tensions. Are children inherently innocent? The dead, queer, absent and precocious children depicted in the films studied on this course challenge such a notion. This cross-disciplinary course undertakes an analysis of the ways in which childhood is constructed cinematically and transnationally. Case studies are largely drawn from Hispanic contexts and include The Spirit of the Beehive (1973), The Others (2001) and Pan’s Labyrinth (2006).
