Home Security and Other Videos of Mass Distraction
These five films can be said to go from the ridiculous to the sublimely ridiculous, each one illustrating in its strange and subtle way, how people, who have surrendered critical thinking and a healthy dose of doubt, can be manipulated and taught to distrust, fear differences of every sort, and make war on one another. A lively and creative way to spark students to engage the streams of media with which they are constantly bombarded with an active and critical eye. An excellent resource for teaching media studies.
