Mulan Film Analysis Through lens of gender, race etc


Communication and Gender Film Analysis Prompt
You are to select a film from among those listed below (or you can talk to me about a different one). The film should in some way address issues of power and powerlessness as seen through the lens of gender, race, economic class, nationality, gender identity or sexual orientation. (Not necessarily all of them, but at a few of them.) Your analysis should apply the concepts of the text to analyze the ways in which identities and cultural groups are social constructions. You analysis should ask the question behind the question, looking beyond the surface of the film to consider the social influences defining gender and individuals adaptation to their intersectional identities.
List of Films (in no particular order) : The Color Purple; Moonlight; Good Will Hunting; To Wong Fu: Thank you Julie Newmar,; Hidden Figures; Fences; Zootopia; Brokeback Mountain; Get Out; The Green Mile; Lion; 20th Century Women; The Help; A season of Orange is the New Black; Gone Girl; Dear White People; the Notebook; Gangs of New York; Fight Club; Mulon; Black and White.
Questions to consider (But you do not have to answer all of these).
These questions are not presented in order, and just answering them that way will not produce an effective essay.
1. How does intersectionality influence identities and societies? How are race, sex, gender orientation, economic class, sexual orientations and age interrelated in impacting individuals and their social roles?
2. How do social institutions create and perpetuate systemic oppression of those marked by difference? How do institutions systematically mute voices of differences?
3. What mechanisms, what means do individuals in the film use to “resist the command performances” that their social identities impose on them?
4. What are the complexities embedded in the interaction of individuals within their own tribes such as White, Upper Middle class or African American female groups.
5. What are the core values that animate the different co-cultures that the film depicts?
7. What was the nature of friendship presented through the movie. Or of love, or family, or of heterosexuality.
