TOPIC: a comparison of the methods and effectiveness of documentary vs. animated films as vehicles for environmental messages.
Choose 1 animated film and 1 documentary film from the films we have viewed in class (Princess Mononoke, Weathering with You, Minamata: The Victims and Their World, Ashes to Honey).
Choose an environmental theme/message for the films. Compare the 2 films in terms of how effective they are at communicating that message/theme through the visual medium of film. Think about the advantages and disadvantages of these 2 genres. Stay focused on the environmental message in the film.
Use 1 environmental term and 1 cinema term in your paper (see list in lecture slides)
Your paper should be primarily analysis not summary. Give evidence from the film/readings to support your claims. For film evidence, analyze specific scenes in the films.
How the films comment on:
The relationship between humans and the environment
The relationship between humans and nonhumans
The relationship between the environmental harm within the film’s setting and that in the real world.
How the films visualize environmental destruction or human’s connection to nature
How/if the films instill an environmental consciousness in the viewer
