Purpose of Assignment:

Through this assignment, we will engage directly with historical film as a media object that uses a depiction of the historical past to tell a story. To understand how the film does so, we will explore 1) the social and historical context of the events portrayed 2) the techniques the films employs to convey meaning 3) the relationship the film has with various source texts 4) the significance of the film for understanding how history is portrayed and consumed in contemporary Korean society.


A successful essay will:

  • Focus on a specific issue/topic/theme pertaining to the film[s]. E.g. treatment of women, use of color, relationship to source text, characterization, moral message etc.
  • Present a cogent ARGUMENT (A thesis) about the film and the issue/topic/theme. E.g. “I argue Film A uses the female characters in the film to highlight different attitudes towards the meaning of loyalty.”
  • Use the events, camera shots, mise-en-scene (scenery, props, framing) of specific scenes, identified by timestamp, to illustrate and back up the ARGUMENT
  • Cite or quote passages from relevant assigned readings to illustrate or back up the ARGUMENT
  • Have a logical organization, with a beginning, middle, and end.
  • Remember that the object of analysis is film, which means:
    • It cannot serve as evidence for the historical past
    • Is more than just dialogue, plot, and story!


  • Does your essay have a thesis that makes a specific argument?
  • Does your essay present concrete evidence to support that thesis?
  • Does your essay make use of the film (i.e. audio-visual aspects) instead of only the story/plot?
  • Does your essay draw on specific texts discussed in class to make its points?
