Abstract

This paper explores how a film in the SchulKinoWochen (School Cinema Weeks) program is used as a pedagogical method and analyses the manual for the film He Named Me Malala [Malala - Ihr Recht auf Bildung] as educational material. The paper uses the deductive method first to focus on film pedagogy and the SchulKinoWochen program. Then, it includes information and reviews about the film and approaches Filmhefte (film guide) as teaching material. The SchulKinoWochen, held each year, aims to foster the film and media literacy/skills of children and young people in Germany through film screenings in various cinemas and activities such as workshops, talks, and seminars—films in the curriculum deal with various socio-psychological, ethical, or cultural issues. Pedagogical materials presenting the backgrounds of the films are included in the program besides viewing the film. For example, teachers use Filmhefte (film guides) as a resource for preparing students before watching and for reviewing the films they have watched. These resources provide content such as background information, interviews, and thematic features of film productions. In conclusion, cinema as an educational space for schools and the pedagogical use of films with related manuals handling various themes have the potential to produce highly effective cognitive-emotional reception. He Named Me Malala is a meaningful example of their peers’ difficulties outside their socio-cultural environment. Here, the function of visual culture in helping to understand someone from a foreign culture comes to mind. Combined with a pedagogical curriculum, such a function can make students more competent film literates.
