This study day is an ideal introduction to prevalent themes and style in the films of Pedro Almodóvar. The day has been structured in response to the A Level specifications. In the morning, a clip-based presentation will give an overview of his work including narrative themes, character archetypes, visual style and influences, casting and intertextuality. We will focus on Todo sobre mi madre (1999) and Volver (2006) and explore how themes, characterisation and style, are apparent in both these films. The session will be mostly conducted in Spanish, and students will be supported in studying key scenes and engaging with in-depth textual analysis. In the afternoon there will be an introduced screening of one Volver, plus Q&A session. A resource pack will be available on the day to continue learning in the classroom.

Led by:

Dr. Sarah Wright, Senior Lecturer, department of Hispanic Studies, Royal Holloway, University of London.
