REVOLUTIONARY OPTIMISTS Writing Prompt
After seeing the movie REVOLUTIONARY OPTIMISTS and speaking with the filmmakers on December 19th, choose one of the writing prompts below and write 50-100 words (due January 7th):
- The filmmakers are shining a spotlight on the efforts of Amlan Ganguly and the work he is doing in the slums of Kolkata. What worthwhile efforts could you focus a spotlight on in San Francisco?
- The children question and fight on the issue of getting a water tap for their community. What is missing/what could be better in San Francisco that you would want to question and fight for?
- In his school Ganguly teaches the students that nobody should be considered lower because of their caste (skin color). Some people in India would consider this a radical idea. But he wants to teach his students to think in a new way. If you could teach young people here, what ideas would you want to get across to them to make them think in a new way?
