Important Class Notes
The inquiring minds in our Films - Portray Social Issues class are celebrating 10 years of film viewing and discussion. Since our first 'Around the World in Film' class in September 2004, we have screened and studied more than 120 films. To celebrate the beginning of our 11th year, we will select 5 of the 'best-of-the-best' films from our list of 120 (instructor's choice, but recommendations welcome). As in the past, participants will be expected to read brief introductory materials, research one or more films, and take part in discussion following each viewing. We always welcome new faces and voices in our discussion of artistic, cultural, and historic films that affect our families, neighborhoods, and global communities today. Class meets every other week.

Class Description
Without historical understanding, there can be no wisdom; without geographical understanding, no social or environmental intelligence; without economic understanding, no sane use of resources and, therefore, no future; and without civic understanding, no democratic citizens and, therefore, no democracy. This is why social studies matters. History, geography, political science, economics, anthropology and sociology are all potential topics.
