To develop an understanding of the main characters in a film

In this lesson we will watch a clip from the film 'Whale Rider' and analyse the two main characters in terms of their actions and internal feelings and emotions. Please note that the death of a mother and brother are briefly mentioned in this lesson. If this is a sensitive topic for your child, please make sure they are adequately supervised. There is also a film clip which features some violence in the context of a Maori tradition.
