Strangers This EFL lesson is designed around a beautiful short film called Strangers directed by Erez Tadmor and Guy Nattiv, and the theme of racism. Students predict a story, watch a short film, speak about racism and write a narrative. I would ask all teachers who use Film English to consider buying my book Film in Action as the royalties which I receive from sales help to keep the website completely free.
