This essay focuses on current international and political situations. You may refer to more or to films from outside our class but make sure to address five films we watched (that’s plenty for the page limit).
choosing from the list of themes below write a 6-8 page (double-spaced, MLA or APA format) essay in which you examine that theme throughout five films from class so far this semester. You may refer to more or to films from outside our class but make sure to address five films we watched (that’s plenty for the page limit). If you have a theme in mind that you do not see below, feel free to run it by me. Choose something interesting to you that helps synthesize your viewing. Feel free to draw on your Viewing responses; they are meant to help you build the formal papers, but don’t just cut and dump them into one document. You need the theme to be present throughout and you need to weave in at least five film terms from Nochimson or other credible sources. All of this should support a central argument / thesis that ties your theme together. Give it some current exigence. In other words, why is it important to notice this theme in the 2020s? How does watching these films inform our current international and political situations?
A semester is half of a school year. In September of your first year of high school, you could describe yourself as “a first-semester freshman.”
The noun semester comes up often when you’re in high school and college. It’s an easy way to divide the school year, into two equal halves, or semesters. Sometimes a class lasts for the whole year, and sometimes for just one semester. Occasionally schools split the year into three trimesters just to make things interesting. Originally, semester meant “six months,” from the Latin root of the same meaning, semestris.
