Learning Goal: I’m working on a film writing question and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.

For your final, I want you to pretend that you are introducing a historically significant film from the 20th century at a film festival. THE FILMS I CHOSE ARE (FRANKENSTEIN OR LITTLE CAESAR) IT’S YOUR CHOICE NO PLAGIARISM

Your final paper is a script of what you will share as you introduce the film to your festival audience. It should be about 2-3 pages double-spaced. The script must include these four elements:

  1. Introduce all basic aspects of the film. Director, major actors, year of release, genre, basic setup or premise (no more than a few sentences).
  2. Place the film in a historical context. Why do you feel it is historically important? Explain whats historically significant about your film. Refer to course materials and use at least three examples. If you use an outside source (book, journal article, or other academic source), you must cite it. Do NOT use Wikipedia or IMDb; they are not academic sources.
  3. Analyze a scene. Analyze one significant scene in the film. Why is it important to the film and to your argument?
  4. Tell the audience what to look out for as they watch. To conclude, tell your audience what to watch for. With your expertise, you can help others see a film differently than they otherwise would. Thats very exciting!
