Screening Analysis – Short Essay Prompt

Due to Canvas Site (via Word document upload), on or before midnight, Monday, April 19

In 4 double-spaced, typed pages, please address the following question. Be sure to carefully analyze how what you see and hear in your scene address the question (e.g., carefully analyze the film scene itself and how it is constructed to communicate particular meanings, formally, based on what you see and hear).

As Sut Jhally notes, in “The Spectacle of Accumulation,” sports may be an idealized realm, but they also “come to reflect the dominant structures and values of the wider society” – presenting “seemingly contradictory functions of escape and socialization.” Analyze one scene of your choice from either Remember the Titans or The Blind Side to support Jhally’s claim.
