Education

Ages 15 to 17
This short provides a way for students to analyze how a filmmaker’s career has evolved. Taking this film as an example, it would be interesting for the teacher to ask students to note the elements of consistency as well as the elements of change between REW-FFWD and a more recent documentary by the same director. The teacher should also ask the following question: did you notice any evolution at all, and, if yes, how is it revealed?
