Pick a film from The Sundance Film Festival to watch. If you go to the information page about each film there will be a link to the film'strailer. Watch all three trailers and then choose a feature film to watch. In the final, next week, you will have to answer a couple of questions and write an short essay about the film and how it relates to other pieces we have seen in this class. You will only have to answer the questions and write an essay on the film you watched, not the other two.
