In this Unabridged Episode, Jen discusses reasons to use film in the classroom and ways to approach interpreting film with students. She suggests giving students Roger Ebert's "How to Read a Movie," an essay that is a helpful introduction to interpreting movies and points listeners to a short film, Rodrigo Blaas's Alma, that is an excellent introduction to film analysis.
