“Secret of the Wild Child” is about the experiences and development of a child that was in solitary confinement for thirteen years. Genie was the name they pinned on the child due to the similarities of being kept in isolation, then suddenly brought out to human society. During the first few months of life, children need to be exposed to other humans who will care and love for them because this creates a set of ideas and attitudes about who they are as independent beings (Brym et al. 2015,96). Genie’s isolation raised the question whether it was too late for her self image to emerge. Genie developed her sense of self out of solitary confinement due to symbolic interactionism, her existing personal conscience, and the growth of the objective component of her self image.
They allow the audience to form their own opinions on the story where they focus on the kids. In addition, they provide the statistical facts regarding to the severity of poverty. Lastly, they ended with a director’s note, these life experiences greatly impact the children’s futures; whether positive or negative outcomes, we do not know. This documentary pulled heart strings, I feel for these children. How can you not, at their young age they have already experienced hardship. As a result, I attempted to look up these kids in hopes that they would have risen from their current situation “what’ happened to Brittany, Jonny and
In Born in the Brothel, a documentary by Zana Briski, she documented the lives of children who are born and raised in a brothel. Briski’s presence in the documentary and the way she could direct the documentary was an essential component that impacted the way the documentary was portrayed. The way that Briski chose to capture the children in a pure light allowed for the audience to connect with the documentary more. When I was first watching the documentary, I was expecting a very informative documentary that was going simply inform me of the conditions of the brothel and how the children are effected from it. I never expected for Briski to capture the purity of the children and how much hope there was inside of them. Although there living

You do know that Genie was not your ordinary Genie in Aladdin. He’s quirky! He’s smart! He’s awesome! He’s fancy! And he got some pretty nifty advices for Aladdin when the little guy opens up his love with Jasmine. We could actually say that Genie is the kind of guy (or uhm, spirit) that can give you awesome advices. And like maybe any other kind of topic, he can actually give you great reasons why you should buy traffic from your trusted trader (uhm err, camel store? Or wait! Traffic supplier!)
The film I decided to write about was “ The Burning Bed.” Farrah Fawcett, who is the main character in the film is a victim of domestic violence and serious past of abuse with her ex husband Paul. The Burning Bed starts off with Farrah and Paul as young adults who fell in love with one another and had three children. Shortly after being together the two had children then got married, throughout the relationship Paul abused Farrah constantly in front of family and their children. Paul’s family was completely blind to the abuse and it turned out Farrah had no one in her corner trying to help her. Over time, police reports were made and then a divorce was finally filed when she was pregnant with her third child. The Burning Bed showed the significance of the fight for self determination, domestic violence, and gender roles.
Thirteen-year-old Genie was found tied to a potty chair on November 4th, 1970, wearing a diaper and unable to talk. Unaware of the outside world and societal norms, Genie was known as the first modern wild child. Genie was locked in her basement for almost her complete life, unable to learn from others and have the opportunity to mentally develop. Through her attempts at rehabilitation by a number of doctors, Genie was able to learn social norms, develop a sense of self and expand her agents of socialization. As Genie learned and explored her new community, she was qualified to adapt to some societal norms. As she was surrounded by others, Genie was able to develop a self-image based on the looking-glass theory. The doctor, hospital, her foster
At first, it was clear Genie could understand more than she was able to speak. Slowly, over 2 years, she began to understand more and more. She finally picked up the difference between singular and plural nouns, negative and positive sentence distinctions, possessive constructions, a few prepositions, and some modifications. Toward the end on Genie research in the fall of 1974 NIHM, the National Institute of Mental Health stopped funding the Genie project, citing failure to collect data in a scientifically meaningful way. For linguist Susan Curtiss, it was time to sum up her years of work with Genie. She finally picked up the difference between singular and plural nouns, negative and positive sentence distinctions, possessive constructions, a few prepositions, and some modifications. Unfortunately, Genie didn’t seem to be able to put words together in a normal, grammatical way. This seemed to support the idea of a critical period for acquiring language. It is unclear if her inability to learn was due to the fact that she had missed her critical period, or the fact that she had undergone extreme trauma as a child. It is also hard to assess this case because researchers weren't able to test her immediately upon discovery to
