Social Strata

Description

This selection of films critically examines social hierarchies, and how they manifest themselves in daily life. Looking at cruise ship vacationers, politicians, and normal urbanites, this session asks: How do hierarchies come into being, how are they perpetuated, and how may they be overturned?
These four films invite us to reflect on the multiplicity of ways in which social groups are established and preserved, and the manner in which communities form along the lines of wealth, ideology, gender and race.
