This course considers films spanning the entire career of pioneering Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel (1900–1983), from his silent surrealist classic of 1929, Un perro andaluz, to his last film, Ese oscuro objeto del deseo (1977). We pay special attention to his Mexican period, in exile, and the films he made in, and about, Spain, including his work in documentary. It explores Buñuel's early friendship with painter Salvador Dalí and poet Federico García Lorca, surrealist aesthetics, the influence of Freud's ideas on dreams and sexuality, and the director's corrosive criticism of bourgeois society and the Catholic church. We will focus on historical contexts and relevant film criticism.

About This Course on OpenCourseWare

The instructor of this course, Elizabeth Garrels, is a Professor Emeritus at MIT. She retired in 2014 after 35 years at the Institute. Professor Garrels taught this course for over 15 years, and it evolved over this time period. Normally, a course on OCW represents the version of a course taught during a specific semester and year. However, for this course we hope to represent the evolution of the course during the main years it was taught. The materials you see here are not from a particular iteration of the course, but are drawn from all of the years the course was taught.

As a consumer, you know the price of the food that you consume daily. However, do you know why your food costs this amount and why it is different from the price it’s sold for in other countries? Well, agricultural public policies determine, among other things, the price you have to pay for your food. In fact, did you know that these policies also impact food security and climate change?

Do not miss this chance to compare agricultural policies in Latin America and the Caribbean, and to describe their influence in food security, climate change and regional competitiveness. For you to achieve this, we will introduce you to ‘AGRIMONITOR’, a database created by IDB that contains information about 23 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. AGRIMONITOR will be your ‘right-hand tool’ in the analysis of all these relevant topics.

In addition to the use of AGRIMONITOR, in the course you will find content videos in which specialists from several organizations (IDB, FAO and OECD) will share their knowledge about the topics covered in the course, readings, IDB case studies in which we promote public policy analysis, suggested readings, practical activities that allow you to apply the content you have learnt, and discussion forums where you and your classmates will discuss several topics starting with guiding questions.

Furthermore, if you obtain 90 points out of 100 in the course, you will have the chance to participate in the “Researching with AGRIMONITOR” competition. The winner (or winners) will work on a research project for the IDB Environment, Rural Development and Disaster Risk Management Division, under the conditions stipulated by the Bank. US$10,000 will be available to finance research projects related to MOOC topics.

Join the course and examine which are the best agricultural public policies in your country.

AGRIMONITOR is waiting for you!

*The AGRIMONITOR course is also available in Spanish. To access the Spanish version, click here.

NOTE: We consider the English version and Spanish version of the course to be different courses. Subscription to the Spanish course does not mean that you will also have access to the English version. If you want access to both versions, you will have to subscribe to both versions. The same rule applies to obtain the course certificate. If you obtain the certificate in the Spanish version of the course, it does not mean that you will also obtain the certificate for the English version of the course.
