It concerns the compelling and moving tale of Sandra Laing, born in 1955 to white Afrikaner parents in South Africa. Thanks to the chance combination of her parents’ genes, Sandra was dark-skinned , had thick curly hair and black-African features. None of this would have mattered very much in a different time or place, but in the South Africa of half-a century ago Sandra’s appearance was hugely controversial. Skin follows Sandra’s thirty-year journey from rejection to acceptance, betrayal to reconciliation, as she struggles to define her place in a changing world — and triumphs against all odds. These materials are designed to complement the film drawing out some of its many potential benefits as a teaching resource not only of great value to media and English groups but also as the launch pad for history, citizenship, PSHE and science lessons focused on genetics.

The Seven Best Silent Short Films for Language Teaching - Kieran Donaghy

To make them easier to sell worldwide, they often contain little or no dialogue, which makes comprehension much easier. As a result, they offer intensely ‘filmic’ experiences, using images and movement, sequence and duration, sound and music to tell their stories. These silent films are perfect for the language classroom as they can be used with any level – the teacher just needs to adapt the difficulty of the task to match the level of the students. Here are the seven short films which I have found work best in the language classroom. Your Secret.
