Film Response Instructions
There are three required films in this course. After watching the films, please write a 1–2-page (~about 500-word) paper that relates the film to the themes and content of the course. For the film response paper, you must choose one of the three films listed in the syllabus.
The best papers will provide brief synopses of the film, scene within the film, or sequence of events in question without spending too much time summarizes on screen happenings. They will also engage with and criticize and/or extend concepts from course readings to further a clear, concise, and textually defended argument.
