The essay should offer a blend of textual analysis and contextual information. Obviously it should be about an aspect of Film History in the period between 1895-1930.

This is a common app application question for applying to university of Michigan majoring film and media studies the questions is “ Everyone belongs to many different communities and/or groups defined by (among other things) shared geography, religion, ethnicity, income, cuisine, interest, race, ideology, or intellectual heritage. Choose one of the communities to which you belong, and describe that community and your place within in “ and this is my brief answer if it’s could help, (I am from Saudi Arabia, here the society is very difficult and very linked to its customs and traditions because of their previous upbringing, and it is not easy to do anything outside these traditions, especially in the specialty that I intend to study, which is film and media studies, because at one time cinema was forbidden in Saudi Arabia and almost prohibited. On society, but with the new vision of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, we hope that things will improve, and we all intend to boldly try new things that people here have never tried.) please write about 400-450 words

The film that needs to be discussed is Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, with a focus on how class impacts the film. attached are the rubric and the only sources able to be used (other than the film itself).
——————————————————————————
The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate your ability to synthesize the information throughout the semester and apply it to a film NOT seen for class. For this paper you will take an outside film approved by your instructor and analyze it according to ONE lens (race, class, gender OR sexual orientation), using a minimum of three anthology articles to support your claims.
This paper is critically important to fulfilling many of your student credits (“Y” credit, Gordon Rule credit, 3000/4000-level course credit) required for graduation.
Failure to submit your paper has severe consequences. This paper is the basis for earning the “Y” credit and Gordon Rule credit. Without this assignment, you cannot earn these credits, regardless of any other work completed for the class. To receive credit, the paper must earn at least a C-.
Your paper will be primarily graded on three criteria: 1) the clarity and conciseness of your writing; 2) proper use of the sources in your paper; and, 3) the ability to identify an issue of race, class, gender and/or sexuality presented in the film and synthesize the arguments as appropriate to the topic of your paper.
More information may be found on the following pages. Please read them carefully. The Grading Rubric explains the criteria for grading your paper and provides a check list. The Assignment explains the purpose and mechanics of the paper assignment.
In addition, please adhere to the following formatting:
Papers must be at least 1,500 words
The word limit does not include Works Cited page, footnotes, endnotes or header
Provide citations for anything you cite (Chicago or MLA style)
Do not use any sources that are not in your Anthology or the Belton textbook
No internet sources are allowed
Papers will be typed, double-spaced, in a 12-point font, and have 1 inch margins
Please feel free to schedule a Zoom appointment with me to discuss your film and topic.
If you are unsure as to how your film represents race, class, gender, or sexuality, ask. But remember: just because the film does not directly address a subject DOES NOT mean it doesn’t represent that subject. The Pixar film Cars, for example, has no actual men or women characters, yet it does address gender issues. All of the cars have a gender though they may not have a sex. Similarly, it also addresses race issues. Two ways to look at race: 1) look at the very few number of cars that do not exhibit typical “white” characteristics and see how they are represented; or 2) look at the lack of additional races and draw a conclusion. Remember you are looking at representation NOT reality. Therefore, you must draw conclusions about symbols of race, class, gender, and sexuality. Rarely will you discuss what the film directly states about these issues. You need to view the film multiple times to do this effectively.
If you turned in a Working Thesis, Outline and Bibliography, it should have been returned with comments to help direct you.
The best papers/essays usually focus on only one multicultural aspect or major point (race, class, gender or sexuality).
You must include a works cited page (Chicago or MLA format).
Penalties apply for late papers.

Essay Requirements and Expectations
Below is some general information and then several documents to review.
Write only in present tense.
Double space your paper.
Use character names when discussing character actions and actor names to discuss actor actions (Johnny Depp acts well, Captain Jack Sparrow seems crazy to all who view him.)
Always cite author ideas as well as quotations.
ALWAYS include a works cited page.
Italicize all film titles.
You will be docked points for every day it is late. All essays will be submitted through Turnitin to check for plagiarism, so don’t forget to cite your work where necessary.
Since each short essay is only 500-750 words, (1500 for the Capstone paper) I expect most of the writing to be your own. However, a Works Cited page is REQUIRED. You must cite all sources, including Belton, the required articles, and the movie. (A sample of each of is available at the top of this sheet. Refer to MLA link for further reference).
No Sources are allowed other than those assigned for the course.
If you do not meet the minimum word requirement, the highest possible grade is the percentage of your word count. (For example, if the minimum is 500 and you write 400 the highest grade you could get – if the paper was perfect – would be 80%).
IMPORTANT!!! Automatic “D” papers (60 points) lack incorporation of at least Two (2) SEPARATE Anthology articles. Automatic “C” papers (70 points) lack a clear thesis.

Consider our final set of readings. What stands out to you as you consider each

Consider our final set of readings. What stands out to you as you consider each of the text (treat the odes as one text) Compare and contrast the author’s use of metaphor, imagery, symbolism, and themes to develop the main characters and the conflicts they encounter. Which metaphors, images, symbols, and themes do we encounter in more than one text? What does each author help us to consider about the way in which we use these literary devices to capture our relationship to and conflicts with the act of eating and the foods we consume?
As always, a well-developed unified reflection will be between 1.5 (three paragraphs) to 3 pages (six paragraphs) in length (double spaced), engage critically in the ideas and concepts presented, and have a clear three-part structure (introduction, supporting paragraph(s), conclusion. Assume readers are familiar with the plots and keep summaries to a minimum.
