The Educational Use of Film and Television Documentary: "Sugihara, Conspiracy of Kindness"
Bostock, William W.
Journal of Curriculum and Teaching, v6 n2 p13-17 2017
Film or television documentary can serve a unique role in the curriculum and teaching of courses in political science and history where the complexity of the human element such as interaction, motive, identity and ethical position require analysis. The documentary "Sugihara, Conspiracy of Kindness," a film by Kirk and Vicari, first screened on May 5, 2005 on PBS, can in a qualitative sense positively demonstrate this role. The negative side to the use of film and television documentary is also noted.
