In this part of the novel magical realism is present with certain situation that happen thought out this chapter. We can relate these movements to Mexico’s mythological believe. Jacqueline Fotes de Leff and Emma Espejel Aco wrote an article “Cultural Myths and Social Relationships in Mexico: A Context for Therapy” in this article the authors explain how myths influence family ideology, the authors states, “Myths develop from universal idea related to life, death and links in general, like union and separation.

Sometimes, power is used responsibly; other time the platform of prestige authority is used in a manipulative way. Power can stem from an individual, but it can also be rooted in memories that haunt people forever. In The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini writes an impactful novel, showing the brutality Afghanistan goes through as power is corrupted in the country.
The appeals of Ethos and Logos are examples of the many unique interests the director uses in the film The Imposter.

McMurphy is admitted into a mental institution in Salem, Oregon, claiming that he’s indeed a “psychopath”, which is all just an act to escape labor duties at the Pendleton Work Farm. After his arrival, he has certainly shifted the ward by encouraging the patients to rebel against the Nurse Ratched’s orders. He seeks to crack Nurse Ratched by testing her authority, but what he doesn’t realize is that she’s capable of using her power against him — by sending him to the Shock Shop. In order to keep her power intact, she manipulates her patients by “pecking” at their manhood during her Therapeutic Meetings or a “Pecking Party”, making them feel emasculated. In “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, we go over how Nurse Ratched abuses her
But even more importantly, the film is an exercise in empathy and listening: in the process of searching for her own “truth,” Cuevas finds her experience embodied in the testimonies of many indigenous subjects who bear witness. The film therefore becomes a kind of echo chamber in which a collective memory resonates and in turn offers a basis for constructing community. The personal becomes, for Cuevas, a pretext for revealing a nation’s trauma and, like the films studied in Part Two, has much to say about the ethics of the encounter between the “I” and the
While the book is a warning to citizens of Latin America, according to Laura Turgeon in World Literature and its Times, One Hundred Years of Solitude’s imaginative plot and setting also “gave exuberant voice to a region of the world that had previously been viewed as lush but inscrutable” by the outside world (407).

A visit to the museum of memory and human rights (Museo de la memoria y derechos humanos) provides a glimpse into life during Chile’s dictatorship years.

Visitors describe the museum 's collections of stories and objects as enlightening, yet somber. According to a Tripadvisor user, “The stories, the pictures, and artifacts are amazing, if somewhat chilling. It is important to learn these lessons so they won’t happen again.”
Constructivists argue that each society has a historically constructed master cleavage and narrative that political entrepreneurs can manipulate (Brass, 2003). It also argues that ethnic identity as a socially constructed and fluid entity that can be initiated from different various means like conquest, colonization or immigration. For Rwanda the root cause of the genocide would be the start from colonization. Identity and culture are the two basic and main aspects of ethnicity. Therefore an individual or group seem to address the problematic of ethnic boundaries and meaning through the construction of identity.

The influence that Ernesto "Che" Guevara (1928-1967) had in the political ideas and events in Latin America during the last half of the 20th century is undeniable. However, the interpretation of his historical figure has caused controversy, and much of the myths surrounding his biography have replaced an analysis of his real work and the historical context of the continent at that time. Guevara's political thought addresses real social problems, seeking a way to confront them and engage in all consequences. Walter Salles’ Motorcycle Diaries tries to show a personal portrait of this young Ernesto Guevara, situating the spectator in the geography and social issues in Latin America.
