Michael Rosen on play, story, talk

This is a continuation of Julia’s first film task post + comments. ‘Play, story and talk’ can be applied to any given film exercise, but playing/talking with ‘what’s real and what’s not real’, ‘the composed and spontaneous’ etc seems a particularly fertile topic for children to get to grips with.

Not sure how relevant this is, but somehow I remembered a clip about the journey of a plastic bag from the inner city and out into the ocean. It’s an ironic comment on our polluted world in the style of a David Attenborough documentary. Are the images real or not real? What’s set up and what’s entirely constructed? What’s stock footage and what’s filmed? It’s also an example of ‘real animal’ action.
