When I was younger, the first few years of history class tended to gloss over most of history, leaving only a paragraph or two for each of the big players: Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, etc. What did I expect, we can’t teach kids all of history, we need to shrink every period down to small digestible bites. Here’s the question though: What will America’s paragraph read like?
Storytelling has been a part of people's’ lives since the beginning of time. It started with just verbal communication, then it was translated into written word, and now there hundreds of ways to tell those same stories. Movies and books, for example, are two very different ways to tell stories to an audience. A story can be a book, but not a movie or vice versa. Many books are made into movies, but lose major elements in translation. One of these examples is in A Raisin in the Sun. It was originally a play written by Lorraine Hansberry, in 1957, but became a movie in 1961 and then remade in 2008, which was directed by Kenny Leon. While the play and the movie follow the same storyline, there are many elements of the play that got added when

Reality television is a contemporary example that relates to pop culture. This has become more and more popular over the last few decades. The phenomenon of reality t.v. reflects today’s pop culture mindset that one can achieve success, fame, beauty and money by simply becoming a reality star. Pop culture is defined as cultural activities or commercial products reflecting, suited to, or aimed at the tastes of the general masses of people. Pop culture also encourages conformity and individualism which is exactly what reality t.v. aims to do. While reality t.v. is popular in countries other than the United States, the American culture has come to greatly depend on the entertainment industry to form the viewers’ attitudes and beliefs. According to Nachbar and Lause, “Popular culture is a ‘Funhouse Mirror’ because it both reflects our ‘image’ back to us but also alters our image in the process of doing so” (7). Today, reality t.v. is very much a part of the funhouse effect as these shows reflect the current image portrayed by reality stars while altering American’s image of what is socially acceptable.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? This question has been hotly debated for centuries with no hardline conclusion. The question “do films shape culture, or does culture shape films?” has the same cyclical, unanswerable nature. Films cannot change culture without in some way reflecting it, and films cannot reflect culture without in some way affecting it. Film is inextricably intertwined in today’s culture, both as a means and as an outcome. Through movies’ ability to stay grounded in some truths, yet also push social boundaries, it is clear that films shape culture, and culture shapes film, making more important now than ever that filmmakers are aware of what they are putting out and the implications they will have.
The industry directly supports about 4,200 full time jobs across the state, jobs that pay, on average, 60,000 dollars a year (Binker). Compare this to the average pay of workers in other occupations across the state, 36,000 dollars annually (Connaughton). While there are other businesses that can employ a similar number of people, the compensation levels of the film industry are hard to compete with. The film industry is also unique in its effect on creating indirect jobs. Its is estimated that for every 100 people employed directly by a film production, about 52 other full time jobs are supported by the production’s spending (Connaughton). In fact, employee compensation in the Charlotte area alone increased by about 118 million dollars due to the film industry (Connaughton). It is fiscally irresponsible to threaten any industry that supports so many well-paying jobs, especially when these jobs are in demand in other
Case Question 1: Most aspects of foreign culture, like languages, religion, gender roles, and problem solving strategies, are hard for a casual observer to understand.

In the contemporary living of the humankind in the 21st century, the popular culture plays a vital role in our own lives especially in youth.

“Tourism Behaviour understanding includes the idea and knowledge of the different factors which are by no other means very obvious because the effects which do shape the activities and tastes of tourism are often highly embedded in the cultural and the personal biography of the individual that the whole of subject is not known of how actually they were made.” (Seaton, 1996).
