4. A brief conclusion (c. ½
Summary of the documentary
You should introduce in a
comprehensive way the most interesting facts you’ve learned from the
documentary, including the emphasis given to the ‘iconophilic aesthetic’ of the
reliquaries, so that your readers could have a good overview of Treasures of
Heaven without having watched it. Your report should be easily understood
by your readers who, in this case (for this assignment only) would be
university students. This means that you should adjust your style to reach that
category of readers. You should be succinct without being superficial, and you
should use appropriate terms/vocabulary to reach them through your report (no
slang please! ).
Your appreciation (review)
of the documentary
You should write as if you were
an art critique. You should weigh the positive and negative aspects of the
documentary and question the way the host and his guests approach the subject
and interact with the objects they introduce. In your appreciation of the
documentary, you could try to answer questions such as (these are just
examples): Did the host and his guests succeed in promoting the interest of
the subject (the relics and their reliquaries)? Are they some points that
remain unclear in the documentary? Has the host considered the reaction of the
audience or clearly ignored it? Would you say that the guests expressed their
personal opinions/views on the subject or remained neutral? Were you offended
by the content of the documentary, and if so, what did you find so offensive?
recommend the documentary or not, and why?
Do not forget
that you are asked to be critical in your report, so take notes when watching
the documentary. That will help to remember what you really liked or disliked
when watching Treasures of Heaven – Reliquaries.
