2. Create a graphic essay analyzing the film you have selected. A graphic essay is an innovative way to present ideas, analysis, and arguments using a combination of visuals, illustrations, photos, video, and text. The graphic essay will contain the same elements of a written essay, but the medium for sharing the elements is more flexible. This project can take the form of an infographic, poster, slideshow, webpage, video, or other creative presentation technique. The advantage of this type of project is that it allows the creation of dynamic and engaging presentation of ideas while encouraging creativity, critical thinking, and effective communication. Your project should include the following:

Message – Provide an overview of the film’s main purpose and message. Make sure you concisely capture the film’s main essence. Present insightful ideas and analysis rather than merely summarizing the film.

Impact – Illustrate the film’s impact related to either a) historical trends, b) societal issues and/or c) sports business concepts.

Recommendation – Explain why you would recommend this film to others. Evaluate the film’s strengths and weaknesses and consider how well it achieves its intended purpose or resonates with its target audience.
