1) the documentary film, “

construction of identity, class identity, social mobilization, race identity, gender identity, sexual
orientation and identity, etc. and their intersections)? Given the page limitations, it is better for you
to go straight to the point rather than devoting space to long introductions, descriptions, quotations
or definitions. The purpose of the paper is to reflect and find connections with the course material

otherwise it is plagiarism!
