Here are a couple of a questions to think about while watching the film:
- Does the Western genre obscure or enhance questions of race and gender in Django: Unchained?
- How is director Quentin Tarantino’s use of violence in Djanjo racialized?
- Does Tarantino’s sense of humor, cinematography, and editing affect how the audience views slavery?
