In your essay answer all of the following questions. Answer them in a well organized essay as opposed to separate written responses to each question. Use paragraphs and headings to organize your essay. 1. What are the identities of the queer people depicted in the film? 2. How are queer lives depicted in the film? 3. Do the representations challenge stereotypes about queer people? Seem to support stereotypes? A bit of both? Explain in detail, giving examples from the film. 3. What kinds of feelings do the depictions of queer lives in the film seek to evoke in the audience? 4. What are the main messages the film was trying to get across in general, and specifically about queer lives? 5. Why do you think the filmmakers made the decisions they made about whether to make the film and how to make it? 6. How does the film deal with issues of class, race, ethnicity, age, and other kinds of diversity in queer communities. Is diversity represented or acknowledged? How? Are queer lives represented in a way that ignores or glosses over issues of class, race, ethnicity, etc.? Why do you think these issues were represented or not represented by the filmmakers? 7. How true to life are the depictions of queer people?Give examples and explanations, referencing what you learned in this class and know about the lives of queer people in the specific time and place the movie is set. 8. How does the story told about queer lives in the film compare to many other stories that have been told in film, television, or literature about queer people? You do not need to do additional research for this question. Instead, I want you to compare what you watched in this film to what you learned about the depictions of queer people from the modules in this class, especially the module on television and film. Make sure to spend a very good amount of your paper answering this question. I want to film you analyze to be put in the context of the other films and representations of queer lives you learned about. For this assignment, you need to watch "Saving Face" about queer lives and analyze it, encorporating information from sources in this class(Gender Studies), as well as two additional sources you will need to identify. paper needs to be five to six pages double spaced in Times New Roman or Cambria font. Your paper also needs to be in the student version of APA (American Psychological Association) format. Make sure in your essay to reference ideas and information you learned from at least three different sources from this class (the textbook, documentaries, lecture slides, linked websites, etc.). You may want to jump ahead and look over information for the unit on film and literature so that you have time to encorporate what you learn about films in that module in your paper. The more you bring into your analysis specific terms, concepts, and information from the units in this class, the better your grade is likely to be. You really need to reference and define terminology and concepts from the class and refer to readings, documentaries, or video clips specifically that you read or watched. I cannot stress this enough. Other sources you will want to identify and cite in your paper are sources that analyze the film you chose or a film like it in terms of the choices the director made and the messages the film tries to communicate, especially messages about gender or sexuality. Academics and even film critics publish papers and articles where they analyze media such as films. You need to locate these sources and use them in the paper, citing them in APA (American Psychological Association) format. My suggestion is to use the college library databases.
