As a student at Minnesota State University, Mankato, you have access to Kanopy to stream movies/documentaries for free on your TV, laptop, or tablet. You may choose one of the following films/documentaries to review that can be found on Kanopy:

More Than A Word (2017)

Capone (2020)

Son of the South (2021)

A Good Day To Die (2011)

Optional: If you have a Netflix subscription, I wanted to offer other movies that can be streamed on that service or rented on Amazon Prime. This is not required as free options can be found on Kanopy. If you’re interested in watching one of these films and do not have the financial ability to rent, please let me know so we can make accommodations.
