Film Fest

2007 Shared Text Filmfest

       In addition to Amazing Grace and Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, the committee has selected Gandhi, Gorillas in the Mist, and Schindler’s List.

       We need to select 3 more films. Keep variety in mind: issues/areas of concern (we already have slavery, ecology, animal conservation, liberation of a country, extermination of the Jews). We have one woman represented. All the films are serious. There is a mix of time periods represented. Careers represented: lawyer/politician, politician, scientist, business man/factory owner. We need other fields, I think. The arts? Humor? Women?

      Please consider whether you would be willing to show a particular film and also whether you would like to design a writing assignment on the film:
