Description:

This paper discusses four different films, "Bound by Honor", "Beloved", "Lion of the Desert" and "Anna and the King". The paper reviews each film in relation to its political and cultural background, and to the emotions prevalent in each movie. The paper claims that cultural oppression is a common theme in all four films. Using emotions as a tool for cultural change is described in the theme of how to overcome oppression.

From the Paper:

"Nearly all matters of cultural diversity involve some degree of emotional reasoning. All of the above movies involve cultural diversity, and indeed cultural oppression, to some degree. In "Bound by Honor" the main characters are motivated by strong culturally connected emotion. Logic is overridden by emotion when two of the three main characters follow paths of self-destruction. The same is true of "Beloved". The black mother and daughter are prisoners of their past, because they cannot free their emotions from it."
