Introduction – Critical Analysis in Film
A collection of videos will be used in this class.
Critical analysis is useful for analyzing the social and ideological influence of different perceptions related to practices in different parts of the world, as well as the roles and stances they assume. The overall objective of team projects and film analysis is to develop the ability to recognize and analyze the numerous facets of our lives through the lens of organizational behavior. It also assists in the ability to apply the perspectives, concepts, and theories to real-life challenges and situations. The activity requires you to draw on relevant frameworks, perspectives, and theories identified in the course through comparison of film.
The approach for analyzing films and/or media is known as critical discourse analysis. It is the meaning of signs/codes, which are also shaped by dialogue. It is the basic way of knowing and thinking by composing the meaning of social practices or theories in detailed contexts (Gee, 1996).
Your mission is to critically analyze the film by comparing the concepts gained from the reading assignments with the actions shared in the film.
