Movies and Justice: Pursuit of Justice

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic This study group will concentrate on films about lawyers, journalists, and political leaders who stood up against injustice and fought for the victims. Such leaders were often ostracized, persecuted, or faced death for their activism. Most of the movies are based on, or inspired by, actual persons and events. Among the films to be viewed in the classroom and discussed are Judgment At Nuremburg, Gandhi, Selma, A Few Good Men, The Insider, and several more highly acclaimed and award winning movies. Articles relevant to the subject matter of each film will be available to the study group participants in advance of specific films. Join us to view the films and discuss them from an historical perspective, as well as their production values.
