How to Read a Film: Case #1, Case #2

Workshop | September 22 | 3:15-6 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


This event is part of an ongoing series to help teachers bring critical film viewing into their classrooms. The moving image, rather than written language, is arguably many students' primary source of information about the broader world. How to Read a Film programs model critical film viewing for teachers.

Case #1, Case #2 is a classroom allegory about state authority, filmed in Iran during the 1979 revolution. Before viewing, participants will learn about the context in which the film was made, plus cinematography techniques to help them analyze the work. A short group discussion will follow viewing. Repeat participants are welcome.

Participation is free for teachers. Space for 12.
