Families in Film: What Can Films Tell Us About Ourselves and Others?
The class will use segments of films as a starting point for stimulating discussions about families. During each of 5 sessions we will discuss one of these films: The Great Santini (1979); Ordinary People (1980); Crooklyn (1994); The Wedding Banquet (1993); and When a Man Loves a Woman (1994). Participants can view the whole film at home before class if they wish. Students will receive discussion questions to ponder before each session. We will look at: the films’ portrayals of communication, handling of feelings and conflict, family structure, and gender roles, as well as the family’s culture and environment. Arlene Weisz is a retired social worker and social work professor who enjoyed using films as part of teaching about families for about 20 years.
