There is nothing so visual, so engaging, so true to life as film to transport students to unfamiliar worlds. This inventive textbook introduces foreign cultures and global concepts through 13 award-winning films from various continents and geopolitical areas. Films discussed include Osama (Afghanistan); Persepolis (Iran/France); Water (India); Beijing Bicycle (China); Tokyo Sonata (Japan); Tsotsi (South Africa); Hotel Rwanda (Rwanda); War Dance (Uganda); Central Station (Brazil); March of the Penguins (Antarctica/France); Sophie Scholl: The Final Days (Germany); The Counterfeiters (Austria); and Pearl (U.S.A., Chickasaw Nation). Each film acts as a launching pad for discussions in world history, geography, economics, government, world literature, media, creative writing, music, and art. By encouraging critical thinking and group activities, this multi-disciplinary primer offers an innovative perspective on international affairs.
