Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word compare and contrast essay for a themed film festival. Choose three films from the three specific time periods to exemplify your theme. The theme could be anything from a specific genre, like the Western, to a topic, such as male representation in film, to a specific time period, and everything in between (see Week Three Preparation Film Festival).

• Identify and explain your personal reason(s) for choosing this focus.
• Identify and explain why University of Phoenix students need to examine this theme, including but not limited to: What will students learn? What new knowledge will be gained? Why is this important?
