This Final Paper asks you watch the documentary films that we viewed in class and to analyze the rhetorical and persuasive strategies employed by the filmmaker in the construction of the film’s argument in an essay that is 3 or more pages long. Your essay should not be a summary of the film, nor should it be a review based on your personal reaction to it. The aim of the assignment is to identify the filmmaker’s thesis and to analyze the rhetorical strategies and persuasive devices in order to develop the film’s thesis. As you view the documentaries presented in class, analyze it and TAKE NOTES.

Your essay should do all of the following:

1. Identify the main argument and / or purpose of the film (this is somewhat subject to interpretation).

2. Provide a brief summary of the film and the “main characters” in and “plot” of the film.

3. Examine the ways in which the thesis or aim of the film’s argument is supported through rhetorical and persuasive strategies (e.g., presentation of facts, dismissing credibility of counterfactual information, not addressing certain related issues, etc.). What is the filmmaker’s purpose? What is the argument/thesis of the film? What assertions/claims are made? To what extent does the argument have validity? Are there fallacies, contradictions, or inconsistincies in the argument? What is the attitude or viewpoint of the filmmaker? Tone? How does the structure of the film help achieve its purpose?

4. To focus your ideas, you’ll need to choose a selection of scenes to analyze. Do not attempt to discuss everything about the film. Your chosen scenes from the film should represent the best the evidence or claims for the film’s purpose. Explain why these seem to the most truthful or persuasive and analyze how the filmmaker uses them to present the film’s argument (do not ask me how many scenes, pick as many as you find necessary for your critique).
