This award-winning movie explores media and it’s effect on society. I wish that our schools would have mandatory classes teaching students about media consumption and how it can effect their sense of identity if they don’t understand it. Our Western culture is seeing a changes in the mental health of our young people, and I believe these changes are strongly related to how the media and advertising in particular has shaped their views of themselves and the world around them. The film makers focus on the Occupy movement and how youth of today participate less and less in activism. They also address the loss of a critical view of our history and how that shapes our policies of today, allowing for increasing authoritarian rule.
