There’s a film out there for almost every topic. If you want to engage students in women’s issues, check out Mohamed Diab’s film, Cairo 678, and get students thinking critically about the perception of women- not just in Egypt, but throughout the world.

As one university professor said after showing our films to his class:

My hope is that showing these films will change the way our students view others, appreciate diversity, and learn to appreciate fine films while enjoying the process of writing essays for class.”- Jim Canacci, Lecturer at Kent State University at Trumbell, (The Educated Eye)

So teachers: Start 2013 off right!  Bring global film to your classroom this year and get the global conversation started!
