December 9, 2005 — Hobbs, NM. Students use films to discover literature in a New Mexico Junior College English course.

This course will examine fifteen recent films, which are relevant to the world in which we live. This course will be primarily discussion-based. Students will analyze and evaluate films of various genres and sub-genres. Some of the films include: "Hotel Rwanda", a biographic docu-drama, "Office Space", a comedy / satire, "Maria Full of Grace", a foreign-language drama, "The World According to Garp", a tragi-comdey / dramedy and "Fried Green Tomatoes", a chick flick.

Students will get one class choice.

The cultural significance of each film will be part of class discussion. The class will also examine what truly makes a film worth watching , the impact of certain films within Western society and how these films are the results, or causes, of particular worldviews.
