Tour + Film: Bend It Like Beckham
Tuesday, December 10, 2019
This program has been cancelled.
Along with a guided tour of the Museum, students will experience a film in the Museum’s auditorium. The screening will use film media to teach English-language arts and history with a focus on interpreting film as non-print text.
Jess Bhamra (Parminder Nagra), the daughter of a strict Indian couple (Anupam Kher, Shaheen Khan) in London, is not permitted to play organized soccer, even though she is 18. When Jess is playing for fun one day, her impressive skills are seen by Jules Paxton (Keira Knightley), who then convinces Jess to play for her semi-pro team. Jess uses elaborate excuses to hide her matches from her family while also dealing with her romantic feelings for her coach, Joe.
