29 Jan Film and Society
Society can be defined as the structure of relationships within which culture (values, beliefs, behaviors and material objects that together make up a people’s way of life) is created and shared through regularized patterns of social interaction.
Social change can be defined as any significant alteration in society (see definition above).
Describe an instance, past or present, in which a specific film of any society/time has resulted in (CAUSED) social change. Do NOT speculate, do not just write about a movie that is about social change, and do not merely write about how a film BROUGHT ABOUT OR CHANGED AWARENESS of something. Awareness is just the first step to social change. Social change involves action. Make sure you include a link(s) to your information.
