Hotel Rwanda describes the rivalry between two ethnic groups, the Hutus and the Tutsis. Both groups shared the same language, culture, territory, customs and beliefs but had different physical features and belonged to different ‘classes’. On the 6th of April 1994, the Presidents of Rwanda and Burundi were killed when their plane was shelled by rocket fire as it attempted to land at the airport in Kingali, Rwanda. The assassination of the Hutu president was attributed to the Tutsis just as a pretext to begin violence since it is believed his own people, the Hutus, murdered him. Then the genocide begins.
The film focuses on the story of Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle), a Hutu hotel manager...

Reflection Paper: Importance of 180o Rule or Action Axis in TV and Film Production
180o Rule or Action Axis is a basic guideline in film making that states that two characters (or other elements) in the same scene should always have the same left/right relationship to each other. If the camera passes over the imaginary axis connecting the subjects, it is called crossing the line. The new shot from the opposite side is known as reverse angle.1
Below is diagram how the 180o Rule or Action Axis looks like:
The said principle is also based on the exchange of looks between the actors, either from left to right (of camera) or right to left (of camera).
Also, the 180...

1. Is it fair that an actor or sport athlete makes more money than a doctor, a teacher, or a person serving in the military?
Someones salary is usually based on the amount of education, knowledge, experience and amount of risk taken. For the most part I found most salary comparisons followed these guidelines. There was one comparison I could not understand. I think that a sport athletes salary and any other person who is willing to put their life at risk for the sake of others, should have comparilable salaries which in most cases is not what is happening.

This summary will touch on what the author says about logic, and how we can apply it to our cognitive source with the attempt of improving our thinking. When discussing logic, the author breaks his introductory topics into two categories; fallacies and definitions. Each of these also has three or more sub-categories. We will be able to take these fallacies and definitions and apply them to recognizing good logic, and poor logic.
The first one I will bring up is the term Fallacy. The author defines a fallacy as, “a logical mistake in reasoning, especially one that it is tempting to make.” He tells us that what most of us define as fallacy is incorrect, at least for logical purposes. When...

I am sure that you have seen the movies where everyone is broken off into their own little groups. Also I realize they have gotten you pretty anxious about your freshman year of highschool, but no need to worry! For the most part the movies are overly clichéd lies. In reality there are only three groups of people and within those groups are many sub-groups. I don’t much though into sub-groups though, since virtually everyone from the same group gets along.
First, the mass majority of an average highschool population; the populars (pops). Yes! That’s right, you didn’t read wrong. Contrary to the beliefs of many, populars are not a select few, but majority of the population. The pops are...

The never ending show! A summary of Appendix II
Life has been said to be theater for many years dating back to medieval times. So far in this book we have discussed that drama has to have an audience because the act must be put on for someone. I think that Max Burkhardt has a very decent theory of dramaturgy, he states that man acts without knowing it whenever he his being observed. In psychology this is called an observational biased, people act differently when they know they are being watched. Nietzsche says that people are constantly playing roles even when they are not being watched. This is very believable because if life is...

Nobody can choose how to look when we are born, and I believe that most of us at some point notice our own defects in our body. It’s been quite long time since many women and even men do surgery on themselves to lose some weight, etc. but apparently that it's not enough now. Many people have been doing chin implants for the past few years and the numbers has increase considerably for a better self image, self esteem, and because there is a small risk rate on that operation.
I do accept that having a surgery on your chin, because a malformation or an accident it could be of a great relief. Living your entire life with a malformation on your face, could be really painful for many people....

Andy is a young, patient and nice man. He works a lot to afford his motorbike and expensive clothes. He is confidence and good to ride bikes which express itself by the way he rode his bike round and round the yard. He is ‘free’, he does what he wants and he lives his life without restrictive measures and without worries.
The reason why Ray and Eleanor have quite different opinions about Andy is because Ray knows how it is to be a boy like Andy.

For our AS Level performance piece we chose to perform iconic playwright-director Steven Berkoff’s adaptation of the story of Agamemnon. Berkoff was born in Stepney, London in 1937 and studied drama in London until he moved to Paris to learn and train the art of mime and physical theatre at the École Jaques le Coq. As a result, many of Berkokff’s productions contain elements of mime and non-verbal acting; they are often very physical and use great exaggeration showing inspiration from the likes of Jaques le Coq. Previously, none of our ensemble had experienced acting that diverged from naturalism, so we wanted to attempt something completely new. This would allow...

One played the famous Indian actor, Amir Khan the main character, with other famous co-actors. The film also won Film Fare Award at 6th position and also best director award.

In this essay, I will delve into both morality and empathy. The question of nature verses nurture is a huge bone of contention in many societies across the globe and wars have been fought solely on the grounds of people’s beliefs. Man’s actions alone do not tell the whole story. In order to have a greater understanding of our own motivations and propensity towards violence and compassion, we must delve deep into the psyche and subconscious of both ourselves and others.

We chose to use freeze-frames to pinpoint key moments within the piece, highlighting the importance of these moments to our audience. Our piece was based on the ‘British bakeoff” in which one of our contestants cheated (me being the cheat) and somebody saw and nobody speaks up about it. The piece portrayed the importance of speaking up and not being a bystander. We also used lighting, for example a spotlight on the key moments to further highlight the important moments in the performance....

Marxist conception of international relations.
The first thing to note is that there is not a Marxist conception of international relations. For pedagogical issues we talk about it, but what we will try to analyze is what has been the contribution that the Marxist theory has done in this field.
This leads us to the study of the Marxist theorists: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Rosa Luxemburgo... Their methodological contributions to international analysis and the confrontation between the "official" theoretical statements of the Communist Party from the Soviet Union, personified in Stalin and the Trotsky's permanent revolution, that was...
