Film Analysis: Fruitvale Station

Satisfactory Essays
On December 7, for our last lecture class, we watched Timbuktu. Similar to the film we watched last week, Fruitvale Station, this film’s purpose is to expose an aspect of society instead of entertaining their audience. Like most media, it has the power over the general population’s opinion and insight. For example, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, because of American media, Muslims and Middle Eastern have been stereotyped in terrorists. While this is the far from the actual truth, American media has successfully scapegoated this group of people. By making movies that actually portrays the truth, public opinion can change about this population. Film can play an important role in changing and improving social and political problems. As seen
