The animal movie exercise requires watching a film of your choice that features a nonhuman animal(s). Examples include “Babe” (starring a pig), “Madagascar” (which features many animals, so just choose one such as the ring-tailed lemur or the hippo), “Lion King” (featuring, of course, lions, or you could choose other beasts from it such as the baboon or meerkat), or “Jaws” (starring a mechanical shark), among others. Check out ”100 Greatest Animals Movies” if you’re seeking inspiration for additional animal movie possibilities.Please submit a 2-3 page summary, double-spaced, in 12-point font that addresses the following elements:a) describe the movie and focal nonhuman animal in it;b) describe (which may require an online or deeper search) how that focal animal interacts with any humans (if relevant) or other nonhuman animals (whether of the same species or not) in the movie;c) describe how that focal animal, in the wild, would typically interact with those same other animals or people (i.e., the depictions of the lemur interacting with other creatures in “Madagascar” bear little resemblance to actual lemur behavior on the island of Madagascar); andd) describe how other stakeholders might view the same focal nonhuman animal: both an organization concerned with the ethical treatment of animals (e.g., how would such a group consider the treatment of Bambi in the movie); and an imaginary group of human hunter-gatherers (who literally hunted animals and gathered plants for subsistence, and lived in small, mobile groups; how would they view, for example, Bambi).
