You need to provide an introduction, a short summary, analysis, and a conclusion. The rest of
the paper must link the film to World history. Much of the review should focus on analysis—the
arguments presented and whether the film portrays history accurately and why. This will lead
you to the ranking for the film—excellent, good, poor? You can also use numerical values and
justify your ranking. As you analyze the film, you will need to cite some segments to support
your arguments. You can also bring in the material from class materials and any outside
material you may have. Cite your sources. Please refer to the film review rubric below.
Here are a few ways of approaching the assignment:
1. Introduction which clearly articulates your argument.
2. Summarize the film in one paragraph.
3. What were the political, economic, and social factors responsible for the issues
discussed in the film? How are the issues affecting society?
4. What are the major arguments presented in the film? Do you agree with these
arguments presented in the film? Why or why not?
5. How does the film help us understand the importance of World history?
6. Look at how and why the issues and views discussed in the film have changed over time.
7. Does the film portray history accurately? How and why?
8. You can select a few scenes from the film to support your argument.
