They work well as essay plans for character questions. They can be laminated and used as placemats on pupils’ desks, or put on walls as a display.

Close analysis of the bombing scene and the aftermath in 'Little Bomb' from 'Wild Tales.

(0)
This two-sided resource (which is best photocopied as an A3 sheet) looks closely at Szifron’s ‘Wild Tales’ short, ‘Little Bomb’. It focuses on the few minutes covering the planting of the bomb and the media/social media reaction to it. One side of the resource requires them to make detailed notes on the continuity editing in the bombing scene. The other side is for making detailed notes on the montage editing in the reaction scenes. Editing can be a tricky thing to write about in the Global Film question, but this helps to get the detail they need.
