Movies and Justice: World of Injustice

« back to classes page
Under the U.S. Constitution, justice means that each person is entitled to due process of law and equal protection of the law. But, it is no secret that in the U.S. and other nations, justice has been obstructed or denied by courts of law, law enforcement agencies, political oppression, or mob rule. This study group will view and discuss important and influential films about injustice throughout the world, past and present. Most of the films are based on actual events and the experiences of those involved. Among the films that will be discussed are: The Ox-Bow Incident (1943), The Front (1976), Voyage Of The Damned (1979), Breaker Morant (1981), Changeling (2008), and others. Articles will be e-mailed to study group members before each film is shown in order to enhance the study group discussion. By way of the films and assigned articles, we will analyze the events and the people from a historical perspective. Join us for the first of a two-part film study on the subject of justice.
