How to use documentaries to promote activism
This article is focused on helping trainers and educators who use socially relevant documentaries to teach history and the social sciences, motivate activists to redress wrong doing and/or challenge community members’ conventional assumptions about society and its’ institutions. After reviewing the evolving importance of documentary in education, models of post-film discussion are reviewed. A best practices model, synthesized from research, personal experience and discussions with documentary film makers is proposed as a starting point for refining the art and practice of using socially relevant documentaries to their fullest potential.
