Latinx American Films
Bring to class a one page discussion, following the instructions for these in
Writing Assignments and Grades, in answer to one of the three following questions:
- From Prada to Nada is an adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel Sense and Sensibility. Please don’t answer this question unless you have read that book. What is one aspect of the adaptation that works or doesn’t work?
- Zoot Suit is based on a true story. How does well the inclusion of factual information work in the film?
- What is one way that both films address negative stereotypes of Latinx people?
