All students will work with a group of 5-6 classmates to develop and present a 15-minute panel discussion on one of two films presented in the course, either Thank You for Smoking (2005) or The Sapphires (2012). Your group will be assigned one of the following presentation weeks and topics: TYFS , group 1 – Using TYFS as a case study, develop guidelines for the use of rhetorical strategies in public health discussions (eg, about AIDS, sexuality, cancer, mobile phones, bike helmets)? TYFS , group 2 – would you describe characters in the film as sophists or rhetors and to what extent does the film present an ethical argument? Sapphires , group 1 – Using The Sapphires as a case study, develop guidelines for inclusive communication about indigenous affairs? Sapphires , group 2 – what rhetorical purpose is served by archival footage of civil rights movements and by musical styles in the film? (backup topic) – how might TYFS and The Sapphires might be interpreted differently by various national audiences, and what might have been done differently to broaden the audiences of these films? Your group must meet prior to the in-class presentation to discuss readings and assign roles from which each member will present. Different roles include: Host – presents a critical (ie, research informed) overview of the group’s question and directs the conversation by making comments and asking questions of the other panellists. Academic critic/s (1 or 2) – discusses the questions main concepts (eg, ethical communication) and/or the film, or might defend or attack an assigned readings for the topic/film. Popular film critic – presents an overview of newspaper and online reviews of the film and evaluates different aspects of the film (eg, storylines, scenes, characters, performances, script features). This perspective should be informed by newspaper and online reviews – databases such as Factiva will be useful. A film producer – discusses the various marketing and production aspects of the film such as poster design, DVD cover design, advertising strategies, how much money the film made, what awards it won. This perspective should be informed by research into, for eg, film funding arrangements, production companies, marketing strategies.

A film director – discusses visual techniques used in the film – such as colour, lighting, setting, costumes, special effects – as well as other features such as script features, actor performances. This perspective should be informed by interviews given by the film’s director and cast. Your presentation will need to use rhetorical strategies to engage your audience. Consider how you might use, for eg, the rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, logos) to engage your audience. Could you use an anecdote to emotionally hook your audience, when might you use humour to keep the discussion interesting or quotes/research to convince people of your perspective? !!!!!!!I just present the part of Popular film critic of the movie Thank You For Smoking in 300 words !!!!!!!!
