Course Description:

Seminars in Ethical Values are designed to enhance students' understanding of ethical issues and address the broader ethical and moral responsibilities of the lawyer as citizen and leader. The seminars are graded on a pass/fail basis; students earn one credit in the spring semester upon successful completion of the seminar.

Pedro Almodóvar (b. 1949) continues to be Spain's most exportable, challenging, and controversial film director. Known worldwide for his provocative and frequently outrageous films, he has matured but not mellowed. In his early films he challenged Spain's clichéd tropes of conservative Catholicism, bullfighting, and flamenco dancing; lately, he has turned his attention to broader issues of gender relationships, machismo, and political corruption. We will begin with one of the early films, Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, 1988), and then trace a trajectory of maturity through four other paradigm-shifting expressions of his unique artistic genius: Carne trémula (Live Flesh, 1997), Abrazos rotos (Broken Embraces, 2009), La piel que habito (The Skin I Live In, 2011), and his newest comedy—and also his highest-grossing opening film ever—, Los amantes pasajeros (I'm So Excited, 2013). Attendance and regular class participation is required.

NOTE: The seminar will meet for five of the first nine Thursday evenings of the fall term starting at 7:30.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required
