Films, Five Culturally Diverse Families and Us
The class will use film segments to promote stimulating discussions about families. During each of 5 sessions we will discuss one of these films: Avalon (1990), Eve’s Bayou (1997), Smoke Signals (1998), Real Women Have Curves (2002), and The Big Sick (2017). Participants can view the whole film at home and/or ponder the discussion questions before each session. We will look at how each family’s history, culture, and environment affect the interactions portrayed. 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.
