One of the major themes of the Hunger Games was rebellion and revolution. We watched a BBC special, “How Facebook Changed the World: The Arab Spring.
This BBC timeline shows patterns of revolutions in many of the Arab states.
Today in Syria, the revolution continues.
Critical Question: After our discussion of the theme of “revolution” from the film and our viewing and discussion of the documentary, comment on the following:
At what point does discontent turn to revolution? How is modern day revolution different than revolutions in the past? Do you think that modern technology gives the people more rights, or gives the government more ability to crack down?
