This course is a taster of how you would unpack a film, looking at character, setting and theme. Studying these can carry on to other parts of both learning and life, such as describing and analysing characters and unpacking moral dilemmas.

Bethany Manders, one of our student teachers will take this course and she intends on it being a combination of lessons, discussions, and collaborative activities. Taking this course means getting involved.

The film, for those who don't yet know, contrasts the experiences of two eight year old boys living on opposing sides of a Nazi concentration camp.
