The film is a means for you to identify and explain your understanding of course
topics present in the film.
Form a team of 4 people.
DO NOT recite the movie plot or give a scene-by-scene description.
Instead explain how our course subject is present in the film or the message(s) the film
conveys regarding humanity, integrity, and the presence of remarkable human will.
You will not have time to discuss the whole movie.
Focus on connecting the character(s) / scene(s) to course topics and examples.
You will have 20 minutes to convey your understanding of the course content.
After your presentation, you will respond to my questions.
For you to receive points, your presentation must be well outlined and rehearsed.
In order for you to take advantage of this opportunity, you must plan your time carefully.
Do not go over the allotted time.
