HOMEWORK: Due Thursday 6th February
Follow the questions on the worksheet.
1. HOPE SCENE
HOW DOES THIS COMPARE TO THE WAY PEOPLE ARE TREATED IN THE DYSTOPIAN MOVIE ‘EQUILIBRIUM?:
Look at how society is controlled which is similar to The Hunger Games. But MOST of all, look at how they believe EMOTION to be the MOST dangerous thing. How dangerous does emotion become in The Hunger Games?
[referring to Katniss’ high rating] President Snow: An eleven? Seneca Crane: She earned it. President Snow: She shot an arrow at your head.
Seneca Crane: Well, at an apple.
President Snow: Near your head. Sit down. [Seneca sits next to Snow]
President Snow: Seneca, why do you think we have a winner? Seneca Crane: What do you mean? President Snow: I mean, why do we have a winner? I mean if we just wanted to intimidate the districts why not round up twenty four at random, and execute them all at one? It would be a lot faster. [Seneca doesn’t know what to reply and just looks at Snow]
President Snow: Hope.
Seneca Crane: Hope?
President Snow: Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective. A lot of hope is dangerous. Spark is fine, as long as it’s contained.
Seneca Crane: So?
President Snow: So, contain it.
Seneca Crane: Right.
This fan made clip focuses on some of the areas in the film that hope gives Katniss the strength to succeed.
