Lauren Taranow 4-13-09 Period 1 Film or Documentary Write-up Step One: Basic Documentation Attach an on-line printout of the description of the movie, as seen either on Blockbuster, Netflix or another web site. This gives me a background of the basics of your film from an outside source. Step Two: Film Analysis Clearly identify and describe the significance of the film. Be sure to give adequate detail of key characters, plot and quotations. Choose a film that goes in-depth, rather than just basic ideas. Key Info Title Year Rating Genre The Wilderness Idea 1992 3.5 Documentary Identify and describe key people (3 characters minimum) 1. Gifford Pinchot – One of the first professional foresters, he believed that nature is a resource that needs to be used, but used wisely. Supported efficiency, rational management of forests, and the idea of conservation towards nature. 2. John Muir – Both a philosopher as well as an author, he believed that nature is sacred, and thought of it as a source of renewal and strength. He differed from Pinchot in that he believed in a preservation approach to nature, where no resources should be taken from nature, but it should be kept the way it is. 3. Bernard Fernow – Pinchot’s mentor, one of the first foresters. Essentially created the schism between the conservationists and the preservationists when he got Pinchot interested in the idea of conservationism rather than preservationism.
