I watched this film in a film and video class in a urban school at 15th of december.
Scout a 6 years old girl that lives in a village called Maycomb with her brother Jem and her father Atticus. She is a testify of the racism of her season inasmuch as her father is a layer and he support a black man called Tom. Tom represent the innocence because he is guilty of rape that he didn't do in this way we can explain the tittle '' To kill a mockingbird ''. the Film represent several social and moral aspects as racism and prejudice for example the racism that tom have to fight and the innocence that breaks in Scout.
It was filmed in Black and White film, and looks like it was an indoor set design but it was definitely very well filmed. The acting was very good and I was impressed by the young actors skills, they were both very persuasive.
Is a film club that happens at the Urban Academy on Mondays and Wednesdays, my teacher choses the films and the specific week it was screened the ''To kill a mockingbird''.
I like that the film is old. Also I like the fact that the film has several moral aspects like racism and prejudge. In the style way I like that the film is in white and black. I think that the film is in white and black for the division of black and withe persons that were in the past other opinion is that is cheaper than film in colour. I have read the book and the film is very close to the original writing.
I think that in the end of the film, Boo has to be judged because in the eyes of the law we are the same, even Aticcus is a layer. Also i don't like that Tom dies but if he hadn't died the film wouldn't be that realistic.
I would recommend this film because it can educate and offer feelings to all people, especially to the younger children as this film is about human rights. A great educational material.
I have learned that the idea of the good doesn't vary in time. i really enjoyed watching the film and I would like to see more films in the near future.
