The purpose for developing a curriculum to accompany this first film is to give film viewers more time and space to allow the main messages of the film to settle-in in a deeper way, to engage a reflection process to make connections between themes of film and their personal lives, and to create space to develop steps for further reflection and action. Our hopes are that the curriculum will assist viewers to imagine the land (including urban land) differently (as permeating our present spaces), to destabilize entitlement around land and norms for understanding and relating to land, and to introduce ideas around relating to land with reciprocity rather than domination.
If you are a facilitator who chooses to use this curriculum we would love to hear about it! Please send a quick note on when, where, the audience, and any feedback you have to: firstname.lastname@example.org
