The movie not only gives us a glimpse to the potential evil and manipulative people of the world, but also helps us to understand that sometimes violence is necessary. When actions are so terrible, so negative, and so extreme that people lose sight of right and wrong, and learn to accept the unacceptable, death is the only real verdict for some.

"Goodnight Mr Tom directed by Jack Gold explores the idea of a 10-year-old boy named William who has been sent to the countryside to be looked after by a man named Tom Oakley. The film presents the idea of the effects of child abuse, and the importance of love and care to raise a child. Through the use of camera work, sound editing, and composition, Gold informs us of the effect of mistreating children and promotes understanding of the requirements of love and care to raise a child.
As a viewer, the documentary’s intention to inform is more completely fulfilled by research conducted beyond the scope of the camera lens. Had I never written this paper, for instance, the reason for all the violence embedded within the subject matter would remain as enigmatic as the documentary itself.
Child abuse casts a shadow the length of a lifetime -Herbert Ward The documentary “A Child in Rage” gave me an indescribable feeling. The hardships and pain that this little girl had to go through was completely disgusting. Because of her father’s neglect, they made this little girls life a living hell.
The second Sudanese Civil War in Sudan forced millions of innocent people to flee their homes and families in search for safety. Doing so, many got displaced or killed because of starvation, genocidal murder and bomb raids. Those who survived were sent to a refugee camp in Kenya and some - the “lost boys”- a name given by aid workers at the camp, had the fortune to be sent by the United States to America to start a new life. Among these were Panther Bior, John Bul Dau, and Daniel Abol Pach, whose life was documented in God Grew Tired of Us. Furthermore, the documentary explores the lives of the Lost Boys of Sudan and their journey as they learn to adapt to the American Life, a life much better and advanced than the oppressed life they lived. The directors, Christopher Dillon Quinn and Tommy Walker, aim to show how the boys cope with learning new customs, rules, trying to keep a job, amongst other things, all while doing the best they can to stay rooted in their culture and help those they left behind in the refugee camp. With actual footage and relatable characters, the film sets a tone that evokes sympathy to viewers, thus relaying a need of action and validating his message of Americans’ forgetfulness and ignorance to their blessings.
The challenges that are presented between cinematic and written story telling are often mostly present through the ability or inability to portray things of the imagination. While both have aspects that prove to be stronger in specific facets of story telling, entering the domain of the imagination is a true

Good morning/afternoon fellow documentary filmmakers, Documentaries help to tell the stories that can change the world, and have the intangible power to bring change to societies hearts and minds. An effective documentary holds the power to evoke an evolutionary emotional response from the viewer, perhaps beginning the revolution to change. Today, my presentation will demonstrate the ability of a documentary to create a greater change in the world, while pursuing a thought-provoking response from viewers. Ultimately, it only takes one person to create a difference in the world, and Growing up Coy, a Still Point Pictures production, is a clear example of this. Today, I will evaluate the films elements in order to understand the power it

Despite the brevity of the short film genre, the lack of commercialist motives associated with the production of these texts present film directors with the personal choice of addressing social critiques. Vincent by Tim Burton explores the use of experimentation through criticising a society’s exclusion of a psychologically disturbed child and the impacts it can have on this individual. In September 11 (Iran), Samira Makhmalbaf concisely presents the innocence and ignorance Afghan children possess, criticising the incessant political turmoil of Iran, which normalises the concept of death and terrorism. The large extent of personal choices a director can present within short films allows for the selection of themes and the social commentary
Loss of Innocence The main point of this article is due to the war, the children are suffering from being introduced to such violent things at such a young age, which is categorized as loss of innocence. The children who served for the rebels lived an abnormal childhood because they were forced to kill or be killed. Eventually, some of the children, were able to perceive the difference between what is right and wrong. The article directly states,”Many children still march with the fighters, but those who have left struggle to find a way forward.”(LA Times Paragraph 31) Obviously the children who have chosen to leave the rebel group have and are struggling to recover mentally. Since they are scarred for life, seeing horrific things either being

Through the use of cinematic techniques, Hidden figures, a movie directed by Theodore Melfi and Bend it like Beckham by Gurinder Chadha both explore the dangers that are inherent in a marginalised society. Each texts demonstrates that hope for change is needed in society as hope can build the momentum for an individual to strive. Through these texts we see that people have no conscience about harming others until they learn the truth about their circumstances. Both directors also emphasise that the abuse of power leads to corruption and can be seen through the segregation
despite the fact that the energy, desperation and punch of this harsh and-prepared film is sufficiently genuine. It's reviving as well. The silver screen and its orderly media-remark industry seem to have unending space for each kind of easily fair immateriality truth be told and fiction. There ought to be space for a paper on the most screamingly essential issue that we as a whole now
