Pages three, four, and five contain comprehension questions to guide the viewer on the work's characterization, cinematography, conflict, editing, inferences, irony, plot, setting, sound, story, suspense, and themes. The sixth page contains discussion questions on the work's choice not to mention the September 11th attack, conflicts, the style of this documentary's filmmaking, symbolism, and themes.
