This week we discussed cinematic trends between 1992 and the present time, paying particular attention to the re-articulation of the “national” in Spanish cultural production. The film by Julio Medem we watched today, Wednesday, entitled Los amantes del círculo polar / Lovers of the Arctic Circle and the novella When a Snake Stares at a Bird / Sugeak txoriari begiratzen dionean by Bernardo Atxaga (pseudonym of Jose Irazu) both address this rearticulation from the point of view of two Basque artists.
By Saturday November 18 at 5pm please post a comment on how you see these two text represent the rearticulation of the Spanish national. This is the last blogpost of this semester. Kudos, all those of you who have contributed to our Scholarblogs page have done a terrific job posting.
