Last time, we discussed some of the ideas that came up in small-group discussions of the recent MBC Blackface Incident. (Which, by the way, if you want to watch it, it’s on a Chinese website: you can see it here, assuming the link hasn’t changed and stays the same… there’s plenty more on Youtube, too… like this.)
I asked you to get a copy of Bamboozled and watch it in preparation for class on Monday, March 26.
I strongly recommend you watch the film carefully, taking notes as you do so. (If you watched it without taking notes, watch it again. Two times is a good minimum for preparation anyway: you watch it once to get the basic story and idea, and a second time to catch things you missed, ask yourself questions, think critically, and so on.)
I have some questions for you about Bamboozled, but I would like to see you engaging with the film. Therefore, I’m only going to ask a couple of my questions:
I’ll let you know what we’re doing on Wednesday during class on Monday.
