The following eight-page study guide film packet is used to accompany the Phillip Noyce-directed 2002 drama film "Rabbit-Proof Fence." It can be used in an English or film studies classroom. The first page contains a list of cast and crew and a background and introduction on the film. The second page is a page that allows viewers to jot and take down their own notes. Pages three, four, five, and six are comprehension questions to guide the viewer on the work's camera movement, characterization, cinematography, conflict, editing, figurative language, foreshadowing, irony, plot, red herrings, set design, sound, story, symbolism, and theme. The seventh page contains discussion questions on the work's characterization, hero cycle, irony, sociocultural context, and symbolism. The eighth and final page is a genre study, asking students to analyze what characteristics of subject matter, style/technique, and ideologies/morals/themes of a survival film are evident in "Rabbit-Proof Fence."
