Lillian Faderman systemically conducts the story of the Lesbian Revolution. In contrast to Sex and Sensibility by Arlene Stein, Faderman’s approach in her book Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers takes upon a more subtle approach. She explains the struggles and strains of the revolution in chronological order, a sharp contrast to the chaotic style displayed by Stein. Methodically, her words intertwine the various intersections and phases that the movement endures. Faderman’s retelling of the revolution begins in the late 1800’s.
The Bulldog in Your Backyard: Identity and Setting in James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room In William J. Spurlin’s chapter in James Baldwin Now the evolution in critical approaches and reception of James Baldwin’s works are thoroughly explored1. This broad range of literary and social discourse proves that Baldwin’s works are approachable from very different standpoints, and that his works are often used to substantiate these viewpoints or usurp Baldwin’s work as representative of their own views (103-21). My aim for this short paper is to do a close-reading of Baldwin’s second novel Giovanni’s Room, in which I will not include any broader literary theories or social discourses but rather concentrate on the text itself.
Atarnajuat: The Fast Runner is a movie revolving around Atarnajuat, Atuat, Oki and Puja, forming different love triangles and causing heartbreaks. To the viewers of the movie, it may seem like an overloaded representation of sexual desires within the Native American Indians, as represented by Oki’s sexual contact with Atuat and that between Puja and Atarnajuat’s brother. However, although it is somewhat true, the movie is a unique addition to the Inuit cinema. The setting of the movie in the Arctic region is representative of the actual Inuit immigration that took place. This movie is one of the most authentic pieces of information about the culture and beliefs of the Inuit people as the entire cast and crew was made of native Inuit people,
Extended essay response Jonathan Scriva Hollywood films have influenced our values and beliefs of socio-cultural groups within a film. In the context of race and gender the films Cowboys and Aliens (2011) and the searchers (1956) both share similarities. These two successful films are 55 years apart the both convey the perspectives of race and gender through the reflection of American Indians in these films. The films The Searchers and Cowboys and Aliens show that Hollywood has changed the way we see the status of Indians. In the earlier film the Indians are represented as killers and mongrels as in this current day and age we have grown to accept them and appreciate their culture.
Demetrios Zioulis TVF 1507 – Prof. Baeva 03/19/2018 Film Analysis: Leviathan Andrey Zvyagintsev’s 2014 Leviathan (Leviafan) is a captivating tragic drama full of deception and coercion taking place in contemporary Russia.

The film seems to draw much influence from Russian cinema most notably, Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1986 film, The Sacrifice, and the country’s own history.
The Bad Kids uses an assortment of techniques to create a way to get the viewer emotional involved in the story. The techniques involved in the film are shots of the weather, the way voice overs are used, and the overall structure of each child’s conflict. The director’s purpose in using these techniques is to get the viewer to see that these kids, who have had a hard life, are largely victims of the circumstances that they were born into. These kids are just a few in a country and world where millions of kids are written off as “bad kids” that have nothing to offer to the world. The director shows that they have a story behind that label and that their stories continue even have people have written them off.

Jullian Karel Androkae DP1 Math HL The Prisoner’s dilemma Mathematical Exploration Table of Contents Introduction The prisoner’s dilemma got me intrigued since the very first time I encountered it a few years ago while trying to learn more about how my favorite TV shows worked, especially “Brain Games” broadcasted on National Geographic Channel. These games often applied game theory to understand human and social behavior. However, my interest about this model of game theory multiplied after encountering a brilliant short movie realized by the French video maker Wil Aime, entitled “Le dilemme du prisonnier” (in English ‘The prisoner’s dilemma’).
In His Book “The Exclusion of Homosexuality from the Public Sphere in the 1930s” Author Chauncy George asserts anti-gay campaigns called the “pansy craze’ began in the early to mid-1930’s as gays and lesbians started to become more visible in nightclubs (p331). Newspapers started the pansy craze via news articles that featured stories about nightclubs Male MC’s wearing lavender makeup and accouterments and Men dressed as Female Impersonators. Newspaper accounts precipitated by a January 25th, 1931 gangland shooting at Club Abbey between gangster co-owner of the club Dutch Shultz and Charlie (Chink) Sherman over control of the “Broadway liquor trade.” Fear of a gangland war the prompted police to crack down on gangland clubs, specifically the “pansy clubs” that featured female
