Course Description

Do you like watching movies? Do you enjoy discussing the plot, themes, characters, and structure of movies?  Are you interested in film critique or filmmaking? Then join the new Northridge Middle School film club where you will be able to learn how to go beyond the surface of the classical movies that you like and discuss your opinions with your peers. Students will watch a series of classical movies and engage in discussions, expanding their minds as to the relevance and importance of basic Catholic themes like love, family, sacrifice, chivalry, and much more. So, if you want to relax and have a good time, while at the same time enhancing your analytic skills, then film club is for you.

Events & Topics

Topics included are: happiness and joy, pain and suffering, chivalry and honor, respect and maturity, love and sacrifice, the power of forgiveness, and much more.

Events may include outings to shows and movies. (This depends on the availability of good movies/shows throughout the school year.)

Skills & Benefits

Students will learn how to analyze movies in-depth, which will help students in their analysis of books. Students will also grow in their ability to factually critique books and discuss them as a result of understanding universal themes, motifs, etc.

Additional Requirements

Students must be willing to occasionally write small essays or paragraphs about the movies in order to create an educated discussion in the club. Students should bring a pen and notebook or folder with loose-leaf paper.
