Because I think it would be fun, I propose a stock-take of everything that has to do with ethics and morality in modern film.
As long as it has a moral dimension you can write about whatever concerns you, interests you, gives you hope, no matter how big the pressing issue or how small the pet peeve. Hopefully this can get people thinking and create various debates.
Once you have a piece ready you can leave a link to it in the comments section at the bottom of this post or send me the link by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively (if you don't have a blog, for example) you can send me the full piece and I can post it on the site in its entirety.
Here are just a few of the subjects you could tackle:
The responsibility of film-makers towards us; our responsibility towards a film as viewers; relationships (sexual and otherwise); censorship; the ratings systems; normalising and glamourising; shock value; torture porn; where a film might be immoral or moral; the rating system; what is being shown to children; profanity; dealing with real historical events and people; piracy; what we do with old films and how the moral rules of engagement have changed over the decades...
The blogathon will run from the 6th to the 14th of March.
