In "Windows and Mirrors," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the group. Explain that one reason modern storytellers—movie-makers—like to retell Charles Dickens's stories is that they present a sharp view of economic injustice and at the same time they convey the humanity we all share. If you feel it necessary, offer a context for the story the group will see. Then show the film or excerpt(s).
Afterward, invite volunteers to sum up the plot. Pay attention to their version(s) of the story for clues to what most impressed them.
Adapt the following questions to lead a discussion.
Position children with vision or hearing disabilities where they can best experience the movie.
