Please read Chapter 7 from A Different Mirror before watching this week’s film. We will be discussing the chapter next Monday in class, however, reading it now will help you contextualize what’s happening in the documentary (and answer the discussion questions). In consideration of your time, I’m giving you until Thursday at 8pm to post your first response and will keep the board open until Sunday at 10pm.
