Since its inception, cinema has been an effective means of reconstructing the past. Its power to convey to the viewer an intense audiovisual experience of historical events completely surpassed that of other approaches. For this reason, a journey through universal history -from the beginnings of humanity to the future- can be carried out through cinema.
In this course, we will propose the analysis of a set of films that reveal how history has been reconstructed through various cinematographic approaches. A selection that will range from Hollywood blockbusters to animation, ranging from drama to humor. With this, we will also be aware of how history is a narrative that can be presented from different interests and aesthetic and ideological perspectives.
