ONLINE: Dive into the world of film biography, focusing on the lives and achievements of Nobel Peace Prize laureates. Through an exploration of seven biographical documentaries, we will examine the laureates' significant roles in promoting and being advocates for peace. Students can develop a deeper understanding of the possibilities and limitations of peace building, while also critically reflecting on their own roles as catalysts for positive change in the world. The guest speaker, including a Q&A, is award-winning Nobel Legacy Film Series director Dawn Gifford Engle. Students will also have an optional opportunity to engage in their own call to action for peace. The films featured in this course are: "Desmond Tutu: Children of the Light", "Adolfo Perez Esquivel: Rivers of Hope," "Rigoberta Menchu: Daughter of the Maya," "Oscar Arias: Without a Shot Fired," "Betty Williams: Contagious Courage" and "The Dalai Lama: Scientist." | Facilitated discussion.
