How to Read a Film: In the Year of the Pig

Workshop | February 28 | 6:20-9:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


In many ways, film (or TV or video) is the first language of information acquisition for students. Do you help students critically view film in your classroom, just as you would help them read critically or analyze data? Would you like to learn more about how to analyze and discuss film?

ORIAS is seeking teachers to participate in a short pilot workshop about critical film viewing. You will have a 30-minute pre-film discussion with a curator, followed by a viewing of In the Year of the Pig. We'll end the evening with a 30-minute post-film analysis of the relationship between the film's message, its content, and its cinematography.

Participation is FREE and limited to 10 people. You will receive a confirmation email letting you know if you are one of the first ten sign-ups or if you are on the wait-list.

Please ONLY sign up if you are available for the full program, from 6:20 to 9:30 PM. Teachers of all disciplines and age groups are welcome.

 This event is for k-14 teachers.


  Registration opens January 31. Register online by February 28.  Contact person: Shane Carter
