Run your general idea for the essay by me via email if you are worried about your topic
General: I wanted to make this assignment more interesting/personal/interactive, so most of the prompts have some sort of film component. However, most of the films deal with very heavy and intense subject matter, and I recognize that it would be unfair to mandate everyone to watch such content. Therefore, some of the prompts are more traditional, and require only pure engagement with academic text.
If watching the films is a hardship, as I know some of them are not free, please let me know, and I will try to arrange a way for you to see the films.
