City of God film review
Students are required to write a seven-page critical essay paper that illustrates their
understanding of social problems from a sociological perspective and how they are
interrelated. This essay will serve as the final exam. For this paper each student should
choose a contemporary film that highlights a specific social problem in the U.S. or
abroad. A documentary will not be accepted. Your paper should be focused on analyzing
how the film social problem is related to other topics that have been covered in class.
Your paper should use at least seven to ten complementary scholarly resources, including
academic journals and government reports to support your analysis of the film. Key class
concepts such as like power, privilege, and oppression should be included in the analysis.
The paper should be double-spaced including a cover page including the Title of your
essay, your name, date, and course name as well as a reference page. In addition to the
content, students will be graded for correct grammar and spelling. Citations should be in
APA style format (you NEED citations). The reference page does not count towards the
page number. Your final paper should be submitted via on Canvas.
