We are going to watch 2 films, 1 is “If you love this planet” and “RIP”.
If you love this planet is a short film that won an Oscar in the 1980’s. It has archived footage of the damage that nuclear bombs are capable of doing and real footage from Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
We will examine and critique films that can cause social change.
