Today in our filmmaking workshop in Dadaab we watched E.T., which none of the guys had ever seen before.  Yesterday we discussed basic screenplay plot development, so I thought we’d use this movie as a way to practice identifying things like the inciting incident, protagonists, plot points, and the climax.  

The first and third photos were taken at the moment E.T. and Elliot are flying on the bicycle.  It was so fun to experience their reactions throughout, but I was the only one that laughed at the line, “It was nothing like that, penis-breath!”  Must have been lost in translation.
