WATCH! This is the film we will be viewing this Friday at the Cyprus International Children's Film Festival. We will discuss themes in class prior, so please have at least two in mind when we get together next.

Don't forget, THEME = a central and dominating idea in a literary work.... The main idea...In addition, the term means a message or moral implicit in any work of art.

The term is from the Greek thema, meaning “proposition,” which was derived from tithenai, meaning “to put.”

Themes in A Taste of Salt - Overcoming poverty and adversity
- Fighting for justice/a good cause

Themes in The Hobbit- Taking risks
- battling one's insecurities
