The activities support young people to identify and analyse the key components of a text, through the 3Cs (colour, camera, character) and the 3Ss (sound, story, setting) of a film. Learners will then be able to discuss and write about how a filmmaker has used these elements to communicate ideas in this film, before giving their reaction in a film review. Through these activities learners can deepen their understanding of significant historical events and compare interpretations in Race with other sources of information, and in turn create their own pieces of artwork and/or filmmaking to reflect and share ideas on the themes raised in the film.

Race is based on the incredible true story of Jesse Owens, a man that the New York Times called "the greatest and most famous athlete in track and field history". Race is an enthralling film about courage, determination, friendship and an inspiring drama about one man's fight to become an Olympic legend.

What our educators say

"As an alternative provision for learners who are not in mainstream school we use your resources in a slightly different way as they generally find it hard to watch a full length film. They are, however fantastic. "
