Read Chakrabarty’s essay and try to take away from it as much as you can. Ulloa’s essay is recommended but not required. This week’s film, Before the Flood, is another call to exercise your audiovisual literacy. The film addresses important facts about climate change but this film, too, tells a very particular tale of certain heroes and proposes “solutions” that we need to evaluate critically, in light of what we have studied this quarter. Recognize film craft (especially editing of shots, soundtrack, the use of emotion, and protagonists) that invite, maybe compel, viewers to endorse only the range of options addressed in the film. What does the film suggest we as viewers do? What are the limitations to the proposed solutions, at the individual, political, and corporate levels?
