This is a PowerPoint file that covers teaching The Chinese film Hero. It includes notes and has a special tilt toward cinematography. It includes comprehension questions about the film, discussions about how the cinematography helps create meaning in the film, and discussion about theme as well. This power point has been used for two years in my Film as Literature class and while students find the material difficult to understand (due mostly to subtitles) they seem to feel good by the end of film since we were able to work together to come to an understanding of it. I also have a final assignment for this film where students write a critical analysis essay.
