Remember that values questions have a “you” in them. The goal is to involve people in relating what they see on the screen to their own lives, not to analyze the filmmaker’s technique or to engage in intellectual criticism. Allow the conversation to flow along a values and feelings track.
Bronowski was a WWI-era Polish immigrant to the UK, who began his academic career as a mathematician but would eventually gain international fame with his signature "two cultures" multimedia work, "The Ascent of Man." His military experiences during and shortly after WWII molded his approach to teaching and learning into a practice more akin to what Alice Miller calls "enlightened witnessing." He died in NY in 1974 and was buried in London. (Photo: BBC Radio)
