Different faces, different films: examining the portrayal of race in different types of film and exploring race-related film resources at Bierce Library.
Film can be a powerful tool for teaching about race. But how do we approach our viewing with a critical eye? Can film mold our perceptions of race? Do all films have the same motivation? Where can I find films on race?
