Writing instruction:

In this essay, take a position on the following question: Which author from our readings, in your view, produces the best and most just political system?

In your answer, you must address the works of at least two authors from our readings, and you must use evidence from at least two films to support your argument.



Scholars endlessly debate over the nature of the connection between film and politics. Many argue that film can shape the political positions and beliefs of individuals, while others claim that films merely reflect the dominant ideologies of a particular era; still others insist on a more complex, reciprocal relationship between film and politics.

In this essay, answer the following question: What, in your view, is the real relationship between film and politics? In other words, how does one affect, shape, or impact the other?

In your answer you must use evidence from chapter one of “Projecting Politics” as well as readings from at least two authors and from at least two films to support your argument.
