How can film help improve a gender equal world? How do we celebrate women’s through films? How can we create a stronger and more diverse world of female characters on screen? These are some of the questions posed in this workshop as we examine how women have been portrayed in movies during the last two decades whilst analysing the strengths and the weaknesses of their representation. Students will also be given the opportunity to create their own female character in a short synopsis, a detailed written description or a mood board. Examples of films analysed include Proxima, Divergent, Belle and The Lady.
In this workshop, students explore films and science, from early depiction of scientists in films such as ‘Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’ and “ Victor Frankenstein”, to more current portrayal of scientists in films such as “Radioactive”, challenging students to question their own perceptions of scientists. The session is aimed to raise awareness on the importance of science throughout history and to inspire young people to study Science. Examples of films studied: ‘Radioactive’, ‘The Aeronauts’ and ‘Innerspace’.
