How do Films from the Past and Present Create a Cultural Anxiety to an Audience from both Image and Text?

ByFarrukh Khan

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This study seeks to explore how film creates cultural anxiety for spectators. Film as a medium permits the filmmaker to present strong immersive experiences that challenge the old model of culture with a popular grip. Whereas spectators may want to denounce the old model, the permeating grip of the old culture and a need for cognitive adjustment and debate causes tensions that result in cultural anxiety. After all, a film presents its message to many, permeating political and media rhetoric across the majority, minority, political and religious spectra. For those interested in films and the art of making films, it is important to understand how anxiety about ‘our’ culture now appears ubiquitous and how films have contributed to this anxiety.
