For this assignment, select and view a film (not a documentary) that discusses some aspect of intercultural relations. Below you can find a list of titles you can choose from. If you choose a title that is not in the list, you need to have my approval before proceeding with your analysis. Since only one student can work on each film, you need to notify me as soon as possible of your choice. You should have a backup choice in case your first choice has already been selected by another member of the class.
You need to conduct a critical analysis of the film as a cultural context, focusing on several scenes that you think are most important to the plot. Here are the guidelines and directives you need to follow in your analysis:
1. Describe the context in which the action takes place. Which elements of the film give us information about the context? How does the context affect communication patterns between the main characters?
2. Describe different identities that emerge in the course of the film. How are these identities constructed (ascription, avowal, interpellation)? How can the communication perspective help us understand the identities of the main characters? How can we use the critical perspective to understand these identities? What is the relationship between identities and context? Identify different social and cultural identities. Does the identity of any of the main characters change in the course of the film? Do any of the characters undergo a process of identity development? What influenced this process? 
3. What can you say about communication styles and language use in the film? What did you learn about the characters from the way they use language? Identify social structures that affect how the language is used (discourse).
4. Analyze nonverbal codes and cultural space. How do the main characters use nonverbal communication? How are cultural spaces constructed in the film? Identify different elements that are used to construct these cultural spaces.
