FIRST, you will want to do some preliminary research about the films below in order to determine which one you find most interesting.

SECOND, you should watch the film carefully, and perhaps multiple times, taking notes as you watch. Pay attention to the overall plot line, character development, as well as any relevant details – especially those related to the central ethical dilemma of the film.

THIRD, and most importantly, you will need to write a 3-4 page (double-spaced, 12pt. Times New Roman) critical response to the film.

The first section of your critical response should begin with an introduction and brief summary of the film’s plot, characters, etc.

The second section of your critical response should discuss the specific type/kind of human right(s) depicted in the film: what is the human rights issue and what right/rights are at stake?

The third (and main) section of your critical response should discuss HOW the film implicitly responds to those who are CRITICAL of human rights.

The fourth (and last) section of your critical response should briefly discuss whether or not YOU agree or disagree with the way in which the film handled the specific human right(s) controversy. Perhaps you were impressed with its treatment of the issue, or perhaps you felt it could somehow have handled it more effectively. LASTLY, Your personal response is very important!
