Education

Ages 12 to 18
Vanishing Point emphasizes how important ancestry is to personal identity, and how family history and culture are intertwined. How are the journeys of Qitdlarssuaq and Navarana intertwined? “More and more, life runs on gasoline and sugar” (36:00): discuss how this quote, and the grocery store clip that follows, highlight the tension between maintaining tradition and modernization. Vanishing Point is considered “cinéma vérité”: what are the qualities of this filmmaking technique and how is it an appropriate description for this film?
