Finding A Place to Stand - Film Curriculum


  Finding A Place to Stand is designed to support educators in community centers, school-based programs and spaces of incarceration to facilitate critical dialogues and creative engagement with concepts presented in the film.

Each of the five intensive modules address a topical entry point, based around a relevant film clip. Scaffolded to meet varying needs, these lessons are accessible as one-off engagements or as sequential programming. Sequentially, the curriculum allows students to grapple with complex questions posed by the film, landing in a final engagement of their own inspirational fuel, passion and purpose.
