SOCIAL MOVEMENT FILM

SOCIAL MOVEMENT FILM

Order Description

Social Movements
Extra Credit Opportunity
Film Review

YOU CAN DO THE MIX TAPE ONE OR THE SISTERS OF 77

This is an opportunity to get a chuck of extra credit points at once rather than the few at a time on the discussion board. This assignment, if done properly, is worth a possible 15 points. The max of extra credit is 25 for the class, if you have done extra credit on the discussion boards I will add this to those points on Canvas.
The assignment is to choose a documentary film about a social movement, watch, and write a review. I have provided links to lists of films below, but you may find one on your own. The film must be no shorter than about 45 minutes- some on the films for action site are very brief- more like quick informational pieces than films. Please make sure the film is about a social movement, protest event, revolution, etc… but not just about a social issue.
To get full credit, you need to generally summarize the film, and then link it to what you’ve been learning in class in some way- referring to course concepts or relevant course ideas that arose in the story. You review should be at least one full single spaced page, or about 600 words.

Here are 3 lists of films to use, not all films on each list will quality as being about a movement, so make sure to read the synopsis before choosing..
