This resource provides clips, stills and activity templates to enable students to work with the stimulus of Flash Gordon (1980, PG) to investigate and analyse democracy, dictatorship and propaganda. For English focussed lessons there is guidance to encourage students to demonstrate their understanding and interpretation of characters, setting and story in the film text through role-play. This resource was written in collaboration with Into Film by a Teach First History teacher, for the BFI's Sci-Fi Days of Fear and Wonder blockbuster season.
We love to hear how educators have used our resources.Contact us
We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
