How We Determine Our Grades

Cultural-based films can give viewers insight into other societies. In Whale Rider, a young Maori girl in New Zealand challenges century-old customs concerning tribal leadership. In Rabbit-Proof Fence, government officials take three Australian Aboriginal children from their community in an effort to improve their future. Escaping from the institution, the girls begin a 1500-mile journey back to their homes. The Iranian film Children of Heaven gives a glimpse into the domestic life of a meager-income family struggling to make ends meet.
