Questions and topics for M 10/7

Here are possible topics for discussion about The Perez Family for M. Feel free to make additional suggestions or to start the conversation here:

  • Showing marginalization through costume, and also character styling like with hair or make-up.
  • Showing marginalization through setting.
  • Action and performance as a way to show which characters have marginal identities and which do not.
  • Visual symbolism, e.g., water and flowers.
  • Uses of color.
  • How the film shows what makes a “family.”
