The movie trailer can be found on youtube or on the official website of Crash. We recommend you to go to www.crashfilm.com and click on "TRAILER" to view it.

Task 1: What does the trailer reveal about the plot? Write 1/2 page about what you expect the storyline of the movie to be.

Task 2: Listen carefully to the dialogues. Find out the mood of the characters portrait. Jot down words that represent the characters mood. What do those words represent?

Task 3: What information do you get that reveal Crash as an episodic or omnibus film?


You will find a lot of information about the film, the characters, the plot and the purpose of the film on this website. They might be useful in a later step of the eLearning Project. If you access them now, you will be less likely to work creatively and will miss the point of the exercise. So we would like you to stick to the trailer only.
