Village of the Damned English or History KS3-KS4

(0)
This lesson uses Village of the Damned (1960) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) to analyse, compare and contrast the reflection of historical context in mid-century film. Both films could be seen to address anxiety that the solidity of British and American post-war life might be overturned, using the metaphor of alien invasion. This project is suitable for English lessons incorporating media to teach analysis of social and historical context, and may also be useful for History schemes of work on the Cold War, as a starting point for how culture responds to international threat.
