The ongoing problem of discrimination due to appearance has affected many, specifically black people. One of the most unusual things with no point or definition. This prejudice against black people has caused much unification within the United States. The lives of these black people have been severely affected, as it has affected their acts, appearances, and ways of life. As Brent Staples explains in his essay “Black Men and Public Space,” black people deal with many problems, from discrimination, and he explains these points in an orderly manner and each very thoroughly.
The audience is the driving force of the movie, and modern film makers know it. Audiences are aware of who is alive and who is dead, but they can not tell the characters who are unsure. We, as the audience, are meant to know about all the tradgey that occurs right before our eyes, but
The presence of it in the main character of a popular film draws attention to the issue, and if anything, increases overall awareness of psychological disorders due to the staggering popularity of movies. The downside is that the way in which these disorders are portrayed in film often exaggerates them, and rarely shows any sort of treatment or resolve for the characters who have the disorders. This popular culture portrayal can make it seem as if there is no way to get help, when there are so many treatments that could benefit the individual. It should be more important to the film directors to include more references to treatment or to consequences should the disorder not go untreated. Additionally, the more realistic the portrayal of the disorder is, the more it can grab people’s attention.
Having a better knowledge of how history is created by the realities seen by the historians. Trouillot helps us grasp the idea that it is important to know that the most honest historians will try to tell the story as accurately as possible from the data. At the same time, many parts of the past get “silenced”, being forgotten about, pushed aside or passed over. Trouillot gives beneficial information that can be applied to our own studies about how this selective “silencing”
Even something as insignificant as speech patterns can help reveal who a character is; in a film understanding the character is especially important from a production standpoint, whether one is the actor, director, or even costume designer. Whatever the role is, understanding the character and analyzing his arc the patterns that define him is of the utmost importance to the overall structure of the story. Without a fully developed and rationalized main character, the story will always fall flat, leaving an audience wondering why they should
Redmayne plays the character of Stephen Hawking very well. He is able to mimic the traits and posture of Hawking’s condition suffering a motor neuron disease. Another important point to note related to the plot and characters imaging is the directors’ decision to add or omit certain characters from the books to the screenplay versions. They often do this to overcome books with first person point of views. In order to be able to visualize the main characters’ story, the films need helps from already existing characters or new characters.
The film itself brought the issue to people who would not have been likely to speak of it, had they not seen the movie (Howell, Listen to the lessons of The King's Speech, 2011). Therefore, the success was arguably the strongest benefactor in this situation, as reviewers couldn’t simply ignore the main focus of the film. This main focus caused the film to not just be a source of entertainment to the public, but also a strong message for people who face the same problems as King George VI once did. Furthermore, it gave people with a stammer a platform and made discussions regarding speech impediments more open and honest. Not only does public awareness grant a voice to the voiceless, and does it make the subject open for discussion, but it also helps people understand the difficulties that come with speech impediments (Fraser, The Stuttering Foundation: A Salute to The King's Speech, 2011).
If one has read ‘Macbeth’ a number of times, it is clear to recognise that there are large parts of the speeches and soliloquies that have been left out. However, Shakespeare’s story does not lose out as a result of the cutting down within this film adaptation. According to Kurzel in an interview with Film 4, the director stated that he did not want the soliloquies to lead the film (YouTube, 2015). I found that the way the soliloquies were presented in the film, as though the characters were in conversation with a figment of their imagination, to be a clever and inventive way to adapt a traditional screen version of Shakespeare’s work. It aids in the translation of their growing insanity and reclusiveness, but also in understanding post traumatic stress disorder that both Kurzel and Fassbender have claimed their adapted Macbeth to have (Film 4, YouTube, 2015).
.” “Black Americans remain the most despised among the community of human races, reinforced via media images. In response is Black self-hate acted out by the political conservatism of Black American Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as icon. Black Conservatives insist that Blacks who fail, if they want, can succeed much as any other. Conversely, research substantiates that the self-hate pathology Black Americans who fail suffer precipitates a decrease in leukocyte telomere length (LTL). A decrease in LTL is a reduction in life span longevity.
Some audiences may enjoy movies like Warm Bodies and feel inclined to read Romeo and Juliet after. Although technically these audience members may not have a scholarly interest in Shakespeare’s works, the continual revival of Shakespeare’s tropes keep him relevant amongst populations other than just scholars. In fact some scholars believe that these constant reproductions of Shakespeare are necessary for keeping his name alive. Film and English professor at the University of Southampton, Shelly Cobb, believes that “Shakespeare and other classical authors are ‘literary ghosts [who] need spokespersons to articulate and perform their lost secrets’”(Cobb). Every modern film and piece of artwork that adapts and appropriates Shakespeare reinvigorates audiences to continually interpret the meaning of Shakespeare’s works.
Later in history, other key factors were responsible for maintaining these inequities. One example of this is "the color line." The color line refers to policies that were implemented with the purpose of segregating African Americans following emancipation. The color line refers to the reservation of desirable employment opportunities for white individuals (Rogers, 2011). Enforced restrictions such as the color line kept minorities in poverty, and with little to no financial assistance, people of color were often left hopeless.
