Week 3, Wednesday 1st March 2023, The British Empire and the Commonwealth: Focus on a few films

Next Wednesday, we will focus on cinema using the questions I have already posted in my mini-filmography ( see below). Your answers will be the starting point of our discussion. We will only focus on 2 or 3 films only.  


A selection of films on the British Empire or the Commonwealth:

Which country (population etc.)  is concerned ? Fiction film ? Biopic ? Is it a blockbuster or not ? Has it received awards ? interesting elements we should know about the film or about its topic?

Which perspective is adopted? Historical and political context? What about the film director ? What is his/her message?

What is the link with our topic?

What about your opinion? Other elements etc..
