question: ‘All films are political, but films are not all political in the same way’ (Wayne 2001: 1). Do you think filmmaking can be an effective form of political activism? Discuss with reference to at least two films from the course and one from outside. (two films from the course are Lilya 4ever(2002), Turtles Can Fl(2004) and one from outside is (film name:choose one relate to the question.)
please write the essay though the abstract below:
Films are designed to embody our feelings and attitudes towards issues in our community. On a similar note, politics serves to create a rational understanding for relationships. From this perspective, films depict the social circles and struggles that form our political realm. However, does politics only cover our relationship to government? Not entirely. Politics comes at various level depending on the individual. At the most basic level, it could involve the individual and his relationship with family and friends. For the purposes of understanding these levels of political engagement in our society, this treatise will seek to examine the various levels of political identity in our society with a view of comparing the impact that external actors have in ones self-awareness. To achieve this, the paper will make a comparative study of how elements shape political identity in the films Lilya 4ever(2002), one film from outside ( year), and Turtles can fly(2004). Each of the three films presents three different levels of political identity. The main characters in the films are all self-aware. Nevertheless, the external elements are seeking to challenge their political identity by presenting ethical dilemma. External actors question their moral values and ethics in their lines or professions. Suffice to say that in the end, those who held out their principles emerged victorious. In some cases, victory comes at a cost, including ones life.
