Abstract

This paper assumes that school, while conducting experimentation activity, is committed to reorganizing education in close connection with the new modalities of learning and “knowledge" organization, as well as with the process of evolution / transformation of today's languages and technologies, keeping up with complex changes in cultural, social, political and economic aspects of modern society. The cinema, through its art films, can be used as an extension of a specific subject of study, as a cultural vehicle, and as a means to conduct the learner to a logical-critical pursuit of knowledge, in tune with the demands posed by a good curriculum planning, the creation of motivation and interest in students, and the openness to disciplinary themes related to reality. It offers several paths for direct exploration and research, around which to organize ideas and new knowledge, developing cognitions of "the other" and "the elsewhere", giving the opportunity to think about those stereotypes through which the image of "the other" is commonly represented and / or manipulated. The methodological approach is primarily based on an interactive analysis and interpretation of a "far away" reality (Sierra Leone), yet close in terms of common contents. Among the cross-cutting objectives, particularly significant are the development and enhancement of language understanding and communication skills; of specific knowledge of socio-economic aspects, which have characterised the cultural and social development of various areas of the "global planet"; and of the underlying communicative and creative trends.
