  Abstract:  

Sport movies are a special cinema genre which often can transcend mere entertainment and explore, deconstructing it critically, the complex phenomena of ancient, modern and contemporary sport. Such films can be used as teaching tools in the socio-cultural and educational analysis of sport. If used as pedagogical tools by physical education teachers and educators, sport movies can help children and youths to better understand values, problems, ideologies and meanings of sport and its importance for the developing of human being. This article, after giving a definition of sport movies, focuses on how sport pedagogy can use this cinema genre for promoting sport values, and it suggests an example of course in which six movies are analyzed and proposed as teaching and learning resources.

Key words: Sport pedagogy, sport movies, values, reflective teaching, new media, cultural studies
