Cry Freedom - Social Justice - Apartheid

Amazon.com


This was an excellent movie to explore the social justice issue of Apartheid. Our students really enjoyed this one and especially because it was a true story. They were moved by the men and women that were highlighted through this movie. I would certainly recommend this movie for High School students studying social justice issues.

The Interpreter - Social Justice - Genocide

Wikipedia
We met and discussed the movie The Interpreter as a way to tackle the issue of Genocide. This year we are going to be looking at a wide range of both social justice and ethics issues. This first movie was an OK beginning. Some students enjoyed it, others not so much. The students thought that we were diving in a little deeper this year and really liked that! I look forward to a wide range of great movies ahead!
