Summary


There is nothing so engaging, so true to life as film to transport students to unfamiliar places.

This textbook introduces foreign cultures and global concepts through 13 award-winning films from around the world: Life of Pi (India) , Beijing Bicycle (China); Persepolis (Iran/France); Osama (Afghanistan); The Lady (Myanmar/ Burma); Spirited Away (Japan); The Counterfeiters (Austria); The Lives of Others (Germany); Chapter Nine: Madagascar (Madagascar); March of the Penguins (Antarctica); Wadjda (Saudi Arabia); The Other Son(Israel)
.

Each is chosen for its richness as a basis for discussions in history, geography, economics, government, literature, music, and art. This multi-disciplinary primer encourages critical thinking and group activities and offers new perspectives on international affairs.
