MOVIES (pick one)

Schindler’s List (1993)

Directed by Steven Spielberg, this movie is considered an epic historical drama that portrays events that occurred under Nazi rule in Germany. Specifically, Schindler’s List is about a businessman, Oskar Schindler, who saved the lives of thousands of Jews during the Holocaust. Although a more recent movie, this movie applied cinematography effects (such as black and white) to evoke the sentiment of that time. This is a very powerful movie, and one that highlights one of the most severe negative consequences of social psychology in history.

Hotel Rwanda (2004)

Also a very powerful movie, Hotel Rwanda is based on the 1994 genocide of the Tutsi people by Hutu extremists in Rwanda, Africa. In one year, Hutu groups initiated the killing of over 800,000 Tutsi people. This movie highlights the social influence and social psychology of a majority group, and the humanity in those who stepped up to help the Tutsi people. Specifically, this movie portrays the acts of hotel owner, Paul Rusesabagina, who used his hotel to try to save over a thousand refugees.
