    A things that has become familiar for people of color is low representation in films and in older films people of color in the US were portrayed as criminals and thugs but what people of color need is representation, black panther in which the protagonist(Chadwick Bosman) was an African American and the movie featured many African actors it was the first of it's kind, it portrayed Africa in a positive way it was the first of it's kind to hit the mainstream.
    Yes minorities need equal and fair representation in films in media because films are a big cause of stigmatization of races.
    And fair representation in films can reduce the stigma caused by previous media.

    A diverse movie is a modern themed multi-cultural movie which celebrates the diversity of culture, sexuality and lifestyle.
    Diversity is about culture, ethnicity, political beliefs, age, and religion. Each of these groups contains people who look, act and think in different ways. In diversity, as in other fields, it isn't necessary to specialise.
    The world is extremely diverse which is why representation is so important. There are people of different colours, different cultures, and different backgrounds everywhere. Yet when we take a look at some of the highest-grossing movies of the last decade, or the most popular television series on streaming services such as Netflix, we can not always find this diversity translated back on the screen. This lack of representation has consequences on our society and the people that can not find themselves back on the screen. I do think it’s powerful for people of a minority race to be represented in pop culture to really show a message that everybody has a place in this world. Films and television can influence the views of the watcher on certain people or different cultures. In addition to this, people of colour or characters with different backgrounds can also shape how underrepresented people view themselves.
    Black Panther was the first time seeing a superhero of color on screen. Better yet, this groundbreaking film which has netted over $900 million dollars, could have been the first time seeing a predominantly black cast with a black director, black costume designers, black hairstylists, and more, actively producing representation in a positive light.

    Why is it important to see diversity in films?!
    Because this diversity will work to communicate different ideas and carry different meanings. You may have seen films (action, horror, comedy or drama). All this diversity works on creativity in conveying a specific message, so we do not put our time on watching the same and repeating ideas, but with two other examples, but with a different and diverse idea We take many judgments after watching

  • enlightened_moth | Rex Mill Middle STEM School E | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    I think diversity is important to see in things like tv shows, movies, cartoons, ETC because it can show and teach kids and 'people' how to not treat people that's not their skin color different like their an animal and a monster. Having multi colored people in things people watch can also help with the history back then. Segregation being one them, segregation put a big racial change on the world. So showing all people coming together as one will help alot with diversity.

    Seeing diversity in films is super important in my opinion because it makes everyone feel part of society . It makes us all feel different which for me is important we feel different . Why? Because strength lies in our differences not in our similarities.

    I think it is important to see diversity in films because people are influenced by what they see. So when they see diversity being represented, they will start to think more carefully about it.
    Also, it is good, because the world is dirverse. People need to see the truth about what has happened through history in diverity. Everybody is different and we should be respected for this. But the truth is-not everybody treates others fairly. We all have prejudices that can influence us.

    Films could make sure they get the representations by making a diversity charter that tells you what you are going to do. People also need to make sure they know what diversity they are trying to represent. We need to address the things we are blind to. Eg: Race; gender; age; even economic class.

    Diversity in films is important because societies are diverse. The more we see people who are different to us, the more we get used to the fact that they are part of society, just like us. Also, people need to see themselves reflected on the screen, so it's not just films, but also TV shows and adverts that should be diverse. People from all backgrounds and especially young people need to see people they can relate to. How are people from different backgrounds supposed to understand they are equal members of society if they don't see people like them on the screen?

    Films can make sure they do their representation right by giving both important and less important roles to different people. I mean, for example the heroes should be both Asian, European, African and American, in a balanced proportion. Also, people from different backgrounds should be given roles as lawyers, politicians, businessmen, scientists, so that young people understand they can become anything they want and that their background is not an obstacle.

  • bright_wallaby | Mayflower Centre | Romania 10 Nov 2022

    I personally think that we should have more people of different racial backgrounds on tv. Why? Well, if we only see white people as the main characters or superheroes, we will belive that they can't be like that just because of their skin color. Think about all the marvel heroes like Iron man, Spiderman , Wonder woman, the hulk, and more. They are all white. The films should have all kinds of movie characters because we need to get used to diversity. If we were all the same, life would be boring. I think that Disney making the new actor of Ariel a black woman is amazing.
    On the other hand, I'm not saying that we should have a black Snow White or a white Black Panther. We should keep to reality as much as we can, and the reality is that human beings are diverse. But also that most people in Europe used to be white and most people in Africa are still black. I think distorting reality for the sake of diversity is wrong. For example, a Korean Queen Victoria just wouldn't make sense.
    Another thing, I think it actually depends on the acting skill too. If a certain black man has better acting skill than a white man, then it's fair to hire him and vice versa. In conclusion I think it is important to show diversity as this is our reality but we should not discount people's ability.

    In the beginning, films are very interesting, sometimes action, sometimes comedy, sometimes drama, etc. Diversity is a beautiful thing. Thinking we only watch a drama now we get bored. How do we know that the representation is correct?! The viewer should be in harmony with the movie, to feel fun and not be bored. The viewer should cry if it is a drama, and laugh if it is a comedy, and be encouraged and excited if it is action.

    A movie with diversity and representation can show and celebrate people of different races, cultural backgrounds, sexualities, genders, religions and many more. In Black Panther, for the first time in Marvel history, we see a person of colour as the main protagonist and hero of the movie. As a person of colour myself, I feel that diversity is extremely important in mass media because POC are still subject to stereotypes and stigmatization for things that make no sense. While some stereotypes are not particularly 'harmful', they still make the progress we made in vain. Although non-POC believe that POC have great representation, we don't. If you look at the most popular movies, they all have mostly, if not an all-white cast and crew.
    Sometimes, people believe that representation is just including a character of colour which it isn't. Good representation depends on how you portray a character. A good representation isn't making a Black character a criminal or thug, good rep is making a movie starring a Black person as the protagonist and focusing on them as a character and not the colour of their skin. Black Panther was one of the films that were able to do this amazingly. Black Panther focused on the culture of the characters and not how they have some sort of internalized racism for themselves. This is unlike many films as most of them tend to follow the same narrative. Someone hates the colour of their skin and movie follows them around their journey. Although it's a good idea, it is usually poorly executed as most of the producers and directors and White. In Black Panther, African culture is shown amazingly and it helps that most of the cast and crew are POC. This helps in the reduction of the stigma around Black people.

    It's important to see different people in movies because we will create a good image about them. We are scared about things that we don't know. My teacher at the start of the lesson told me think about how do you feel if you enter a dark room. At first you feel scared because you don't know what is inside but if you turn on the light you see that it is just a normal room. That is the same for diverse movies. The movies are a guiding light to the unknown of diversity. If the movies aren't diverse they won't teach you to love the people among you. That's why we should see diversity in movies.

  • fun_rainforest | Mayflower Centre | Romania 10 Nov 2022

    I believe it is important to see diversity in films because it gives people not familiar with diverse people the idea that they're not so different from other types of people and it encourages them to make friends from different places. Film can make sure they do representation right by having an equal amount of diverse actors. That way, people will see others can do interesting things. Do you think diverse people should be in films or only one type of people should be in a film? How can we see the real world if we only see it from one point of view?

  • incomparable_armadillo | Mayflower Centre | Romania 10 Nov 2022

    To see diversity in films is important because white people realise that they should treat different skin colour people the same. The films can make sure that they do representation right by putting different skin colour people as the main characters and role models in the films. In my country the Roma community are always put down in films which is wrong and it makes people treat them differently. Could Romanian films make the Roma community the main characters and the good guys for once?

  • memorable_cookie | Mayflower Centre | Romania 10 Nov 2022

    I think that it is important to see diversity in films, because of the mindset people get if they only see the world through movies one way. It doesn't matter if it is a fantasy or sci-fi film. People will always believe at least a few things from a film, so I think it should really exist more diversity in films. For example, to get used to seeing more different people in real life, without being that surprised and maybe even afraid of them. My teacher told me today in class that when he was younger he was afraid of diverse people because he is from a place where it is not common. He said that he changed his mind because of TV. Maybe we can entroduce different characters. People might actually change theyre mindset this way.

  • breathtaking_meteor | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 10 Nov 2022

    I think it is important to see diversity in films because not only that it tells people to respect other races but it also develops confidence in people of all the different races . I my self remember how happy I was this year when I saw the first Pakistani super hero( ms marvel ) it gives all the people the courage that they can be a part of something big and gives them a sense of belonging that they are not less than anyone. Black panther was the first black lead solo super hero movie so it was a big step against racism. And I think it is also important because all the children who see the movie develop a healthy mindset that all humans are equal and a black person can also lead us. Also seeing shuri becoming the new black panther shows that a woman can also be a leader defying the concept of that only men are strong enough to lead.
    So , I think that it's important to see diversity in films because it eliminates the complex about a race or religion and also creates an environment in which we are all equally human.

    Diversity is the beauty of our world .When a film maker projects diversity with people of different cultures,religions,colours and background...it signifies that everyone is accepted and inclusive .Diversity makes us feel as citizen of the world.Recently,i watched an indian Movie' PK 'which was great in its impact .It reflected that our people minds are hijacked by zealots.We have forgotten the message by Allah .Our belief system is diametrically convulated...it left many logical questions on my mind.The movie impacted to billion of people.Thus diversity in movies impact our mental health.

    Why is it so diverse to see diversity in films? : This diversity communicates different ideas and different meanings from one person to another (some people think in terms of creativity and intelligence from those different films they have seen).
    Different people should be affected by what they see in the movies. For example, we made a movie and had black heroes and white heroes in secondary roles, white people the idea that they are no different from white than they are and that they are equal in every color
    And people will believe some things
    To show and celebrate people of different races, cultural backgrounds, nationalities, genders and religions Because of her opinion of the article the person holds (by what he does after watching the movie or for example in the movie so-and-so - the hero acted like a mover or what is sometimes said about him)
    Movies can make sure they get representation by putting in a diversity meth that tells you what they are going to do or do correctly by assigning important and less important roles to different people.

    Diversity in acting is very important, with diversity, people do not get bored of watching movies, and when the movie has a new story with a new diversity, the curiosity of viewers increases to know the story and the axis around which the movie revolves, and everything is in a special way so that it convinces the viewer to complete watching to see what will happen
    People also benefit from this diversity in their lives. It is possible that the situations in this movie happen with someone and through the movie realize what they are going through, or raise the awareness of the ignorant, as we learn from diversity. And this is a different judgment and values ​​that we benefit from in our lives and learn and how to act in certain situations that happen to us, where there are people who do not like a certain type of film, with different films, everyone has the right to pursue the genre he likes.

    diversity is important because it teaches us how to act, it influences our choices and gives us hope and it includes everyone and inclusion of everyone's viewpoints and perspectives is key to a better community. It also enhances our creativity, every culture and everyone views the world in different and useful perspectives.

    Seeing the diversity in the films brings excitement and enthusiasm to the viewers, and it is also possible to take information from the films that we did not know before. The films are very beautiful and also beautiful according to the type of the film. The film has types, including action, thriller, drama, comedy and others, all of which are entertaining and interesting in the viewers' point of view.
    I think it can be ensured that it is represented correctly when the viewer enjoys watching and likes the story of the film.

    There should be diversity in films. I feel that it would help to reduce gender inequality and also discrimination. When all the different genders and races are well represented in films, it introduces a feeling or sense of equality and belonging. It helps to portray to society that there can be unity in diversity, when everyone works together to achieve a goal.

    Not only does on-screen representation give us the chance to see outside of our bubble, but it also allows others to feel included and seen. Having a cast with a specific background can often break certain stereotypes that come with the culture through character and plot development. Diversity in films also makes an accurate portrayal of society that can affect both the over and the under represented groups of society. It helps raise awareness and empower individuals.

    Film companies can make research on a culture before representing it poorly or badly in movies which would offend a huge group of people. When looking for cast members they must get someone who really can represent the culture they are trying to portray in the movies.

  • amazing_computer | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 10 Nov 2022

    Diversity in films is important because it helps to portray an accurate show of society both the over and under-represented groups of society. Having diversity in the film industry is therefore a better representation of the different members of society. It is not only films that need to be diverse. Magazines and adverts too, need to be diverse. We as a global community are diverse hence all our affairs ought also to be diverse.

    Diversity in films is also important because it helps people to be open-minded it will open up people's minds to new ways of thinking. Films influence people a lot and having a good representation in films can help people to develop a good mindset toward other people.

    In order to ensure diversity in films and in the media, certain things can also be done. They include:
    1. People from different backgrounds(Asians, Africans, Europeans and Americans) should be employed to make adverts. This will also help to attract more people to the advert.

    2. Heroes in movies and even comic books should not only be from one place different people too can be used.

    The effects of lack of diversity in films and the media.
    1. People who are not adequately in films and media feel bad and inferior.

    2. Actors from other backgrounds that are not being picked to act in films, lose opportunities and money.

    3. Society will not have an open mindset about people from other walks of life because they are not represented in films and in the media.

    4. People will have inaccurate, little or no information about other people, and as a result, people become unaware of how diverse and beautiful our world is.

    5. Since people are influenced by the media a lot, they copy the attitude of a lack of diversity in things to that they do in their daily life. For example, someone can learn the habit of not having diversity from films and can bring it to his or her workplace, home, school, or society.

    Our world has always been a heterogeneous mixture of people from different races, religions, regions and genders coming together. This diversity is what makes our world so unique and valuable. Which also means that every single community deserves representation in films and the media. Due to initiatives by Marvel such as Black Panther, Miss Marvel, Shang Chi etc., these groups are being represented in the global world.

    The youth, especially, idolises its favourite actors and characters from the books, movies and shows it reads or watches. Having characters from different regions all across the world opens our minds and makes us welcome their cultures and the values they bring with them.

    It is very important to display such communities on the global screen because what we see is what we practice. We get greatly influenced by the characters we see in movies specially in this digital era, making it very necessary to give proper representation to all social and economic groups. Just like a bench never discriminates between the physical appearance, the economic status, the social background or anything like that when anyone sits on it, we should actually learn from that bench because then that will make us inclusive and will ultimately make the world a better place for every single person to live in.

    In my opinion it is the most important to see diversity in films . A diverse movie is a modern themed multi-cultural movie which celebrates the diversity of culture, sexuality and lifestyle. People may know about other's culture , ethnicity and rituals . This makes people more united by their own means . Indian films known as Bollywood is the best example which shows the diversity in their movies . By showing diversities minority group never feels alienated . When we see something our mind also jot down good values and at time we implement them . Diversity hence plays an important role in our life for making us united and we can connect to each other through their culture , traditions and many more .

    Movies play a crucial role in shaping the minds of their viewers and therefore it is important for the movie to have content that inspires and acts as a role model in society. Diversity is an important asset of a movie as it helps reach a more variety of viewers and helps every person irrespective of their race, color, gender, etc. to be united as one and relate to the characters and the content of the movie. For example in the movie, Black Panther the main protagonist is a black person who is shown as a kind, strong and powerful person and this character has inspired many black people in society who are generally discriminated against and seen as inferior because of prejudices. Such movies help a lot in overthrowing the prejudices in society and displaying a message of unity in diversity to the viewers.
    Films can make sure they get representation by making a diversity charter that tells you what you are going to do. People also need to make sure they know what diversity they are trying to represent. We need to address the things we are blind to by including inspiring characters of different races; gender; ages; colors etc. and giving out a positive message that eliminates the prejudices.

    If there was no diversity in films, I don't think anyone would be interested in watching any movies anymore. Movies are a way of social expression and society is not made up of only particular groups of people but different cultures collectively. Why should we let simple differences like race, skin color, sexuality, and age group stop us from bringing our cultures together for our benefit? Racism especially has been the major cause of segregation in humanity. But for the first time, we see a black hero everyone admires. As Martin Luther King Jr. said, " I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Our within should matter more than our without. If our society is diverse, why should the very expression of it not be? Why do we allow simple differences to separate us so much that we lose sight of how beautiful it is to be together?
    This brings me to speak up about something I think everyone should be more open-minded about. The way we stand up to racism.

    How can films make sure they do represention right ?
    When the number of followers and positive comments for the movie increses . When the number of followers of the movie increses the actors must make sure that they are also viewers who comment negative comments and in this case the actors try to fix the mistake and start acting better .

  • brilliant_vegetable | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 10 Nov 2022

    I believe it is important to see diversity because some people can have insecurities and by seeing others different yet in the end, being the protagonist in the film really brings the reminder that everyone is different yet special. Also, since children are quite easily manipulated into thinking various things, it is of paramount importance that they learn at a young age that no matter your gender, skin colour or culture, you can work together. By watching different films with different plots, I have learned to love my class in reality as all "corners" of the world meet. We are like jigsaw puzzle pieces, each one intricate yet different, but in the end, when we join, the picture is complete : peace, harmony, unity.

    diversity is one of the best thing that brought marvel back to the scene, because it made people influenced to see people of their colour and behaviuor and way of leaving being the leading or the protoganist of the movies this really captured people's attention making black panther the best selling movie in its time.
    this action of diversity shows that the movie makers think about the others races and they follow there way of behaviour. This really excites people to see themselves reflected on screens. And since the world is diverse so the more people seeing there culture and people makes them like the movie and the movie makers so diversity is another thing that helps the movie makers gain more attention of the crowd because an accurate portrayal of society affects both the over-and under-represented groups of society. Whereas an inaccurate, often offensive portrayal is harmful to both entire communities and also individual people if diversity is used in a wrong way.

    Black Panther is one movie everyone gives credit for its breakthrough in racial segregation in the film industry. But what do we all know about upcoming black actors who struggle in a bid to secure a large protagonist role for other movies? Black Panther is not just a movie, it is a success story. Many black actors and actresses dream of making it big in the film industry, but how many actually do? I see Black Panther more deeply because of this fact. Chadwick Boseman, the actor who plays the main role in the movie was able to secure such a big role for himself, but the movie is not as entertaining as it is insightful for me. I understand that most of the actors and actresses in the movie were black individuals, but what about the actors and actresses who play roles in movies influenced more by white people? Of course, not all of them may get to play big roles or get to act in movies with more black culture in them. So why isn't anyone remembering those struggling actors? It may even interest you to know that there is discrimination even among black people. Let me give an example, an actress named Amandla Stenberg of a light-skinned complexion, stepped away from acting "Shuri" in the 2018 Black Panther movie by her own violation. When asked why she replied that she didn't think it would visually make sense for her to go after a role and it wasn't appropriate for her to play in that role. And what about the darker-skinned actors or actresses, who get turned down or turn down roles just because they were made to think their color was not appropriate for a particular role? I do not discredit the movie, in fact, I really appreciate that it was able to come out and stand up for black people in the film industry but why should we forget that discrimination is finding other ways to still affect our lives?

    It is very important to diversity in films, because the whole world does not have the same opinion or the same mentality.
    Films have a great impact on people, including negative and positive ones. Film directors must turn to the benefit, not the negativity, when preparing films, as they are the main influence on the people who are interested in that.

Movies have a great influence on child and adults all around the world and it's very important to highlight diversity in movies so the minority communities can also participate and grow their influence. It's very important for the movie industry to show the world that diversity is important, normal and most importantly healthy.

    People love diversity in watching their movies because everyone has favorite ideas and things they are attracted to, whether they are young or old, so the word diversity has a beautiful meaning because it includes the meaning of difference, for example, boys are attracted to cars and racing movies and some of them are attracted to fighting movies just as girls are attracted to movies Brides, Disney movies, princesses, and others, and there are girls who love watching cars and racing movies, so diversity is a wonderful thing. Also, in choosing the specialties that people want to enter, they must be diverse. If they were similar, everyone would have lacked other specialties, and because diversity is a good thing for the individual and society, for example, doctors advise diversity. When marrying and not marrying those who have a kinship relationship, such as a cousin and a cousin, as I am, diversity is useful because if there was no difference in the films and in the details of these films, people would be bored of watching them.

    Disaster films, war films, sports films, musical films, superhero films, and other films, but the main question is what is the reason for the diversity in films and the answer is

    There should be diversity in films simply for the sake of intellectual diversity around the world, as we see that the percentage of viewers of films increases daily around the world, the idea of ​​diversity in films must be present in films for many and important reasons at the same time, such as:
    1- Movies are sometimes sympathizing with a certain group of society, such as those who are outcast from those around them or who suffer from a disease.
    2- The diversity of films expands perceptions and ways of thinking, for example, there are films that talk about surgeries that doctors benefit from, there are films that talk about technology and industry that engineers and those interested in electronics benefit from, so the films have become an arena for exchanging experiences indirectly around the world
    3- The diversity of films is a source of inspiration for many young people, helping them to exploit their buried talents and develop them with good and useful morals for the prosperity of society.
    4- The diversity of films increases the awareness of society and creates a conscious generation that is educated about many things. Therefore, these films are considered a means of delivering many messages to people around the world.
    Film owners can ensure that films are represented around the world by laying firm foundations for the success of the artwork, to be followed around the world, and to be reviewed periodically. Useful to be applied in the community directly, to benefit the community from all sides.

    _ I very much agree that diversity in films is very useful, that Black Panther has become one of the most famous and best films, but let's ask ourselves questions:

    1. Why is it one of the best movies? Answer: Because it has presented a mixture of environments and cultures, and facts in the world that we close our eyes to, such as racial discrimination between white and black, and also made people aware of the feelings of others, whether white or black, and this film collected more than An idea that brought together more than one culture, gender or color, and thus this film showed that equality between race, gender and color stems from our hearts and is not imposed on us, as we must imagine everyone when discrimination is made.

    2. How did it become one of the best films?? This film brought together more than one gender and color, and this encouraged the people of black skin to participate and show themselves and give them self-confidence, and made them able to achieve what they wanted without fear or shame from others, and also made the people of white skin appreciate and respect others and respect them. Their ideas, and if the world becomes like this, everyone will have the opportunity to realize their dreams and elevate themselves.

    3. What should we do to achieve this justice among all?? Film and series directors must choose the competent in acting, not white or black, and blacks must be treated like whites, whether it is education, medical treatment or the economy, and give them opportunities to form and show themselves, and they must be valued and their ideas.

    It is important to see diversity in films because, in time, I hope people would finally find it normal to see other races in these films. Nowadays, people kind of make it a big thing to see other people in films but, I think it should be as normal as white people actors. Film directors should stop representing characters by race, people should just go to auditions and see if they fit the character, not considering their race. This is true equality, nobody should be made to feel like they need to be given special treatment. It should be based on talent.

    I feel like diversity is important in films because it can help people that have been marginalised to feel included in society. It also shows the majority that people from minorities are just normal people. This can be achieved by representing those minorities in a variety of roles. For example if a certain race or religion is only portrayed like criminals or terrorists, then the general public will keep in mind this idea. But if they are given all sorts of roles we will get used to them being part of society just like us.
    In my view this is not just about race, but about all minorities. Films can make us get used to the fact that for example people with disabilities can do the jobs we do and that women can be successful in any jobs and that they can be heroes too. These are all steps towards a more inclusive society.

    I think it’s important to see diversity in films because everyone has the right to feel included and automatically their race or gender too. Or maybe the fact that some films make a gender look like they are better or have more chances to do anything and the people that see a film like that would think it’s real what they saw in the film and that might discourage them. I have friends who are discriminated against who I think could have better representation today in class I talked about my friends from the Roma community who my classmates are not very nice to and I think we should have more good characters for them in Romanian films to normalise them also.

  • lively_armadillo | Mayflower Centre | Romania 11 Nov 2022

    Firstly, i’ll say it is significant to see diversity in films for the reason that no one should be excluded. Film producers ought to normalize the idea of diversity of all sorts and try to make films that include all types of people.

  • victorious_leaf | Mayflower Centre | Romania 11 Nov 2022

    It's important to see diversity in films because films can influence other people's perspective on that certain community. Is important to try and include all the communities because they can feel left out if not.
    If Romanian people were only having the role of the thiefs and criminals that could influence other's point of view on the Romanian community and then people might be afraid of Romanians.
    Films can make sure that they make representation right by includeing all the communities so no one would feel discriminated.

    I think that Jack from the film Titanic could change the world because he sacrificed his life for his love Rose when everyone was focused on themselves. We need people like that who make sacrifices for the greater good.

  • glorious_politics | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 11 Nov 2022

    I believe that diversity in films is a major factor that motivates audiences to watch films and thus increases their revenues. It increases audiences' confidence in dramatic work, raises their preconceptions about it, and increases the incentive to watch it.

  • lovely_meteor | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 11 Nov 2022

    I think it is important to see diversity in films because people are influenced by what they see. So when they see diversity being represented, they will start to think more carefully about it.
    Also, it is good, because the world is dirverse. People need to see the truth about what has happened through history in diverity. Everybody is different and we should be respected for this. But the truth is-not everybody treates others fairly. We all have prejudices that can influence us.

  • lovely_meteor | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 11 Nov 2022

    If there was no diversity in films, I don't think anyone would be interested in watching any movies anymore. Movies are a way of social expression and society is not made up of only particular groups of people but different cultures collectively. Why should we let simple differences like race, skin color, sexuality, and age group stop us from bringing our cultures together for our benefit? Racism especially has been the major cause of segregation in humanity. But for the first time, we see a black hero everyone admires. As Martin Luther King Jr. said, " I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Our within should matter more than our without. If our society is diverse, why should the very expression of it not be? Why do we allow simple differences to separate us so much that we lose sight of how beautiful it is to be together?

  • rhetorical_beetle | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 11 Nov 2022

    Who would love to watch a movie that has only one set of characters? Absolutely no one! The diversity in a movie makes the movie interesting and gives everyone the sense of togetherness and oneness, because the world is gradually healing the large vacuum that RACISM has left and it would be very nice to watch a movie that accommodates every individual qualified for that particular role irrespective of race.
    when every race is equally represented in a movie cast, the movie becomes a blockbuster because everyone across the globe will want to see the actors from their race on the global stage, and this brings about equal representation among races because everyone was granted the opportunity.

    For me, films have a large and effective role in influencing people and achieving the desired goal because they touch their hearts and feelings and clarify the idea to be communicated to them. Diversity in films helps to think well that makes people see the real truth, and actors must represent reality in a way Correct by giving important roles

    Diversity in films is very important. Films are shown to the public and that makes it a very sensitive area because people are easily influenced by the things they see in films. The diversity that I am talking about is not about just employing people from different backgrounds like Asians, Africans, Europeans, and Americans to make a movie. After all, people from different backgrounds can be employed to make a movie but still be poorly represented. We can see instances like this in movies where blacks are given bad roles to act. Roles to be thieves, kidnappers, or villains while the white people are given good roles to be seen as heroes. In a sense, this shows diversity in the movies as they are different people from different places in the movie but the blacks are poorly represented in this case and that is not the kind of diversity that will effectively bring about change in the world. We can see instances of this manifesting itself in our everyday life when crimes are committed and the first suspects are the blacks that happened to be at the scene of the crime at that time. This is not fair. People behave like this mostly because of things they have learned elsewhere like in films. The kind of diversity I am talking about that will bring about a positive change in the world is in cases where blacks too are given good roles to be heroes for a change because giving blacks bad roles presents them poorly to the world and this influences the way they are seen in the world. The film industry is a very sensitive area as it is an area that exposes things bad or good to people and these things can influence people either negatively or positively. It is important that filmmakers realize how delicate their work is and incorporate the diversity that will make a positive change in the world when making their films.

  • mesmerising_swan | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 11 Nov 2022

    I feel its important to see diversity in movies because diversity brings about creativity and innovation. Every culture, every nationality, every single person sees the world in a different way. Similarly, every culture, nationality, and person has different knowledge, perspectives, and points of view. When all of these different views are seen in films, people get to see the fuller and better pictures of things. If everyone was exactly the same, no one would ever learn anything because there would be no knowledge I feel it is very vital and important diversity is shown in films so that peoples different experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds are known.

  • calm_deer | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 11 Nov 2022

    I have different point of view.There is so much forced diversity in movies these days.Because everyday people demand it. They think that if it isn't showned on tv, it doesn't exist.Instead of a producer making a story, it's the people demanding what should be showned.Instead of seeing a brilliant character in a story, people see a represent of a group on the screen.Instead of someone making their own movie about what they want, they complain to moviemakers and (again) demand them to include more diverse people.And I don't have anything against "black" people or homosexuals being in movies! What I am against however is when the "must" to have them becomes greater then the quality or the joy of the movie. (I mean, just look at Frozen 2 for example - I loved the general guy of the Prince, but come on, how many dark skinned people did he fantasy land of Norway have back in the 1800s?

    Diversity is a very important key when it comes to many things, so when they ask if it important in movies I would say it is a very important factor. Diversity doesn’t only apply to skin color but also age, ethnicity, culture etc. It teaches both children and adults what it means to appreciate the differences in people and that everyone has a shot at both the high and low roles. The diversity portrayed in Black Panther shows all the specialties everyone has found in their diverse backgrounds. This concept of diversity creates unity and peace when living with others.

    The representation should be shown in films by equality of the different people around. All people should get a chance to experience the high and low positions and roles of the different characters in a film. Black Panther portrayed this very well it shows that everyone can play any role they desire. When representing this factor film makers should also put in the concept of balancing well to make sure no role is over shadowed by another role. The representation makes others feel wanted and helps people work with each other.

  • crafty_guava | Scoris International School | Uganda 11 Nov 2022

    Diversity in films is important for both children and adult. Why i think so is because it teaches them that it is okay to see people of different races,culture, and sexuality. Diversity is all about the differences people have and what makes those differences special about them.

    So having people of different races,culture,age and sexuality in a film like black panther is a great idea because it teaches people that it doesn’t matter how different we are from each other,we’re all one.

    It teaches people to always appreciate who they are and that it’s their differences that make them who they are.

    The cultural diversity in is about bringing people from diverse backgrounds and creating an environment that not only recognizes their differences but also celebrate them and make them feel comfortable with who they are.
    After the premiere of black panther, many black people,both kids and adults, have felt more comfortable with who they are.

    Seeing a super hero of color was one of the most interesting and enlightening moment because it was the first time that a black cast has been dominated worldwide.

  • daring_cherry | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 11 Nov 2022

    In my opinion,
    1.Diversity in movies is a very vital thing if we are to call a movie a world class level because it enables people of different cultures to showcase their cultures and features to the outside world and in this way through a movie's diversity, a country gets more tourists to it and more revenue is got thus supporting revenues.
    2. Diversity in a movie helps bring the idea of an oppression free world where all races are respected and cherished, diversity in race rises awareness among people that everyone should be treated equally no matter their race and colour for example the movie black panther where we had both blacks and whites representing their races and this actually made the people of either side to fill not left out and equally brought on board.
    3.Diversity also strengthens the foundation of movie industry in way that many young actors from different areas of the world might be brought and used to represent different lifestyles. Besides that, it also enables people watching movies across the globe to learn how things in other cultures are given meaning for example whites could learn about the African's culture disciplines and way of child nurturing through a movie with great diversity.
    4.Diversity in movies could also bring about inspirations for example many young black film actors, children and adults got inspired by the scene of a black superhero movie by marvel(black panther).
    In short, movie diversity is actually a key to a change in the world's general opinion of others.
    Right representation could be done by getting actors that belong a particular race, culture and lifestyle that is intended to be represented. Such actors could possess attributes like colour, accent, dressing code so as to make the right representation.

  • shy_lake | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 11 Nov 2022

    representation is
    needed because for some people the only
    way that they feel validated or safe is when they see a reflection of themselves in the shows or in the movies that they watch Oscar Wilde said that life imitates art far more than art imitates life for example why is it that black people in films are most commonly associated with drugs crimes and poverty and that they happen to be the number one victims of police brutality to me that doesn't seem like a coincidence

  • champion_camel | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 11 Nov 2022

    Why is it important to see diversity in films? And how can films make sure they do representation right?
    Seeing diversity in films matters because accurate portrayal of different societies, cultures and origins affects both the under-represented and the over-represented groups of different societies and cultures whereas inaccurate portrayal of societies usually offends societies and cultures that haven't been included in a movie. The movie Black Panther showed diversity where by Chadwick Boseman represented the black culture and there wasn't any offense to any race.

  • broadminded_memory | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 11 Nov 2022

    Diversity-A topic which is nowadays, used left and right over the Internet without people knowing its actual meaning .So, what does the word 'Diversity' even mean: it means having the potential ability to embrace people from different social and ethnic groups, irrespective of their varying backgrounds or racial orientations. People tend to have a notion of acting superior than others and desperately try to demoralize the minority sections based on their colour, gender, sect in the process. This is where movies and other forms of visual entertainment come into play: they help shape public opinion and stimulate the minds of the youth towards representation and diversity. This rule applies even more categorically to Superhero franchises like Marvel or DC whose characters are well-versed within the audience and have become household names in the western culture. When people witness films in which the hero belongs to a different society and has contrasting colours, but still he/she manages to win their hearts and become their role models, they eventually begin to rethink about this crucial aspect of life: 'Unity in Diversity'. A fitting example of the above statement is Marvel Studios' Black Panther, which came out in 2018 and proved to be one of the most inspiring films ever. Prior to the release of the movie, people were skeptical about the movie's success as they thought a Black male lead in the film, that too of African descent would infuriate the American conservatives and people would boycott the film. Instead, the audience's response to the movie was very positive to the point that fans were even urging Marvel to make more films with heroes of varying backgrounds and cultures instead of the ordinary white dude wearing a cape. This proves the need of having increased representation in films which not only motivates the society to accommodate regional diversity but also encourages the old-school individuals to change their mindset towards inequalities and oppression.

    It is diversity: change, creativity, innovation and other terms it contains.
    The most prominent factor in the success of films is diversity, because it works to attract all target groups, and brings the whole world to you within hours while you are sitting on your bed. Through diversity, you can learn about cultures, nationalities, customs and traditions and make you reconsider the world again. If there's variety, people will get tired of re-watching the same scenes over and over again on different sets of people, so their business won't work and they'll lend the movies then.

    Diversity is all about culture, ethnicity, age and religion an accurate portrayal of society affects both the over-and under-represented groups of society . Black panther portrays a unique background and culture for all its characters appreciating the wealth and depth of both black culture in the US and Africa .
    it brought a fictional African country Wakanda to the US portraying the African cultures and traditions followed bringing different race together to work as one this shows however different the skin color may be we all can come as one to create a beautiful piece of art .
    The movie landscape was action not only was it action but it portrays other an it embodies and conveys the values and beliefs of the culture within which and for which it is made allows them to know that people aren't their stereotypes and that they are diverse and have all sorts of traits not based solely on their identity.
    Movies portray different culture allowing many who know little or nothing about the continent or country know something about the country or develop an idea of what the country may be like .
    Hopefully this may reduce the racisms in the globe as all work together in harmony ,

    Films and series give us the opportunity to learn about things that may not be in our life bubble . They also allow others to make them feel they are seen . I think films are one of the most appropriate ways to teens to let them adjust to their lives in a right way . On screen presentation can have a great impact on teenagers' thoughts and they should realize that people have different colors , different cultures and different backgrounds . Diversity in films is a great help to the mental health of teens who will grow up to be good citizens who know the importance of respect . black panther , encanto and coco and so many films are great films to show the importance of such an idea . Representation of diversity brings in more acceptance and teaches us that everyone has the right to tell their stories .
    Furthermore, the world is diverse and every inch in this world has plenty of people of different cultures and backgrounds ,so how can't we accept diversity? The most important part of filmmaking is choosing actors and actresses that look like you or at least you can relate to . So, the movie will succeed in being reflective of the diverse world we live in . If you and everyone else see themselves reflected in media in general, there will be no stereotype no judgement based on your religion, your background , your skin color or any other aspect and also students at schools will learn that it's normal that others are different and thus there will be no bullying anymore at schools.
    I think diversity acceptance is the key to respect and this will lead to avoiding stereotypes and everyone will try to address their biases .So everyone will focus on what they have ,the talents ,abilities and the skills they can gain.
    One more wish ,I hope there will be more movies about disabled people and the miracles they are doing and how they can be an inspiration for others.

    We become what we see. We do what we see everybody around us doing. Hence, diversity is important to see in films. But what does Diversity actually mean? Diversity means embracing every culture's and every person's uniqueness. Diversity is what makes the human civilization complete. When we see diversity in our role models, we get inspired. For example Kobe Bryant is a basketball legend. I have heard many of his speeches and interviews in which he says only one thing- We must always do what we love and whatever we do we must give our best at it. Everyday, he woke up at 5 AM and practiced. He worked for minimum 10 hours a day. Even after he became the greatest, he never stopped working. He only pushed himself harder and harder and harder. Following his example, I try to do my best to study for I want to become the best lawyer the world has even seen.
    One more such example is the character of King T'challa or the Black Panther portrayed by Chadwick Boseman. When released in 2018, it came out as one of the best films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the Black Panther being the first black super hero of the MCU. Chadwick became one of the most inspiring characters in the MCU stealing the hearts of everybody- people of different races, castes and genders. Chadwick became an icon for everybody. Even after his death in 2020, the character of Black Panther in the next sequel was not changed because everybody became attached to him.
    So, yeah, I do believe that there should be a good diversity and representation in the film industry. They discourage discrimination among people and bring people closer to each other. In a diverse country like India, which has many different religions, castes and races, this would create a positive effect on our youth. Remember- it requires many different and unique flowers to make a wonderful bouquet.

    Seeing the diversity in films so that we can benefit from the story in general. For example, if all films talk about the same topic, people will get bored of watching them and will not get fame, which is the main reason for making films.

    In my opinion diversity is a thing that all tv, shows, films, ect should have because it makes everybody feel comfortable the way there are. It also brings people from different cultures and societies. If we go back into older films people of color are usually shown as the bad guys, criminals, ect it also influences kids of color to not like their own race do to how they are portrayed in older films. This is proven by a test somebody did on an african american kid years back. The kid had to answer the question if they liked the black race more than the white race more. The kid said he liked the white race more because in films he sees the bad guys are usually people of color and never white people. so that's why i think diversity is a good thing in my opinion.

    Representation is one of the most important aspects of any piece of popular media. Us Humans want to fit into society and are very easily influenced by whatever is popular. Movies need to show healthy representation because in today's modern world, Media is the strongest social force that can create a huge influence on society. In the case of Black Panther, Marvel has done an amazing job by showcasing healthy representation of African people and culture to the world. This is a huge step for unity among everyone on this planet no matter our differences. Media holds immense power that can show us how we can spread love and support despite our differences. Marvel has also made steps to showcase more LGBTQ+ representation in their recent works.

    It is very important to display such communities on the global screen because what we see is what we practice. We get greatly influenced by the characters we see in movies specially in this digital era, making it very necessary to give proper representation to all social and economic groups. Just like a bench never discriminates between the physical appearance, the economic status, the social background or anything like that when anyone sits on it, we should actually learn from that bench because then that will make us inclusive and will ultimately make the world a better place for every single person to live in.

    I think it is important to see diversity in films because people are influenced by what they see. So when they see diversity being represented, they will start to think more carefully about it.

    Diversity has shown everyone that they are included in anything that people are doing. it is shown very well in the movie black panther. That even after the death of the protagonist (Chadwick Bosman) may his soul rest in peace, that not only a woman can also rule and while at it make the world a better place ,and that no matter how you look your not alone in this huge world , even though your not seen now you time will came and when it dose everyone will see you for you you are and not for how you look.
    People may say thank god for the twenty first century and for how the world has evolved. And not just seeing people with color as workers or companions for the white man, but as people who can change the world in a very positive way.
    Diversity is also shown well in the movie(woman king )and how the women took up the role of defending the kingdom from her enemies. To sum it up, diversity is shown well in todays world not only in films, but in offices of power in schools and even in families. Diversity has also shown everyone that(EVERYONE MATTERS AND WE ARE ALL IMPORTANT).

    What is diversity first of all?
    Diversity is the involving of people from different backgrounds for example, different sexual orientations, culture, gender and religion.
    In BLACK PANTHER : Wakanda Forever, diversity is portrayed when people of different races, culture or kingdoms, beliefs and gender are shown in the movie.

    Why is it important to see diversity in films?
    It is important to see diversity in movies because it gives people courage and opportunities to work in different areas of achievement without worrying to much about racism or discrimination.

    Secondly diversity is important because it gives an accurate portray of both the under and over of representation. Diversity also increases productivity, it helps in gaining new experiences and builds peoples perspectives.

    I think it is good to watch films, for example, I have done a lot about Western culture because I am from the Middle East and I do not travel much, so I need documentaries about cultures, but there are problems that hinder films such as quality The accuracy of films, and there are films that also spread a bad side about countries, and this is something that does not benefit the state or the development of films, but most of these films spread very widely, spreading a bad idea about the state and this idea spreads in all Viewers of these films, however, there are cartoon films, realistic stories, and films that have a wonderful positive role in learning about the cultures of the country. The difference in films is also useful because it gives a viewer's point of view that this country is good. It has a positive role in the development of the world, and I watched many films that gave me an incentive to learn about the cultures of other countries. I also liked many countries that I hope to visit at some time in my life.

    People around the world are connected and communicate through films and screenings. The message displayed by films impacts our mindset. It depends on the representation if the impact is negative or positive. The diversity in movies breaks stereotypes and prejudices and makes the lives of minorities easier in real life. We may think that everything presented on screen is just fiction and is meant for entertainment but with a broader perspective it can make changes in reality.

    Diversity in a film doesn't actually mean that the actors in the films are "not-white". It means that the actors are a large variety of people, racial or otherwise, including white people. While black panther was a great and very interesting movie, it was not diverse. It was made up of a 95% black cast but it was still a great movie. I like diversity in films when it makes sense not just when the other diverse actors are just put in a movie just to be there or so that it will be on record that the actors of that film were diverse. There are many movies I have watched that had diverse characters and the movies just felt "formulaic" like they were just being put there just to appease a demographic. The characters were just used as posters to make the world see that there was diversity in the film but in the real sense, the movie had no heart. Don't you pity characters who were put in a movie just to be there as politically correct pawns? Wouldn't you rather have characters in a movie that make logical sense? Black panther's cast was not particularly diverse but the movie was still epic. A movie does need to be diverse in order to make sense. If the actors in a movie are just diverse just for diversity's sake then it is better than the movie is not diverse at all. Yes, diversity is good in movies when it comes from a sincere desire and motive for diversity but movies that are not diverse but are equally good should also be accepted because it is good for movie that is good and does not insult or offend a particular group of people to be rejected for not being diverse. Because diversity in films is important does not mean that there should be wars on "all-white" or "all-black" casts.

    This topic is a very interesting topic and so I brought it up in a discussion with some of my friends here are some of the things they said.
    Person 1: "Having diversity in movies is good but in some movies, I have watched that are diverse some of the characters are being wrongly represented like when black people are given dangerous roles to act it creates stereotypes about them and makes them seem bad."

    Person 2: "Diversity is good in movies but sometimes the movies are just diverse in the casts and not the plots or storylines of the movie. For example, a movie can have a diverse set of actors but still have the same old stories of white being the heroes and blacks being villains or playing bad roles."

    Person 3: "I think diversity in films is very important because we live in a diverse world and it is important that every part of the diversity of this world is represented for its diversity and it is also important so that people will not feel inferior or superior to the other. Everybody will be equally respected."

    Person 4: "Sometimes in films, diverse actors are used to acting films just so that they can please a group of people and as a result, the movies do not end up having an interesting or inspiring feel. This just promotes hypocrisy among people in the world."

    Person 5: "I like movies like "Black Panther" and "Do the right thing" although the actors were not diverse, they were made up of mostly black actors but they had inspiring storylines and were overall very epic. They were not diverse but at least they did not insult, try to offend, or disregard any other group of people so I think a film does not have to be diverse to be good."

    Diversity in popular movies and television series matters because an accurate portrayal of society affects both the over-and under-represented groups of society.
    Whereas an inaccurate, often offensive portrayal is harmful to both entire communities and also individual people. Everyone deserves to have their story told.
    Media representation allows them to know that people aren't their stereotypes and that they are diverse and have all sorts of traits not based solely on their identity. It's incredibly important that people are aware of and understand other cultures.

    Why diversity is important?
    For this reason, diverse representation on television is critical, raising awareness, empowering individuals.

    Diversity in films is required, for the difference of the audience, in order to cover larger categories of tastes. Diversity in films is a cultural diversity and an essential element in societies, and an effective influence. Films help us understand ourselves and our thoughts. It is not only a means of entertainment, but it is a means alongside religion, philosophy and thought in life. The value of films is that it makes the individual more wise, mature and knowledgeable. Let us make films and their diversity a new perspective to deal with our problems and ourselves, and also they can reveal the hidden side and the unknown consequences of a certain behavior or idea that I do. I did not realize its results, and the success of the films appears as a good and profound way to fully understand life....

    We can easily relate with what we see in such cases diversity is important in films. We learn some diversities through the film's. Film industry has to make sure that their film shouldn't hurt particular community of people.In most of the film's we can see that the particular community people only shown as Mafia or as a negative person. Because of this some people came to conclusion that they only do such illegal works. First this opinion of people should change. Because of these, that particular community of people was getting hurt. I am not blaming on all film directors. When we see some movies we can get inspiration right? So we want that kind of movies to be produced more in film industry.

    _Films play an important role in influencing the minds of viewers in communicating new facts, issues, and cultures So diversity: means the ability to employ people and ideas in various social, ethnic, and economic issues Diversity helps build opinions, stimulate minds, think deeply, and build perspectives. An example of this is the movie Black Panther, which was the most important movie in 2018 It was an example of diversity, because Marvel changed the choice of white heroes and chose a black one. Its choice was attractive and right because it urged viewers to be equal and non-discriminatory.

    _In conclusion, I advise everyone when watching movies that they are not only for entertainment, but we must think and focus on the idea that the movie conveys to us.

    As far as I know, movies are stories based on fact or fiction. We believe that it is important to have diversity in films in terms of diversity in gender and the color of the skin of the actors so that it is not racist. And to be varied between the roughness and softness of the scenes. Films can ensure that they are represented correctly by: Focus on the age group to which the film is sent and suspense the followers. And not to deviate from the scope of the script, choosing the right place, lighting and the right camera.

    We are living in a diverse society and the chances of getting to know everything are hard in real-time, and not for everybody. Movies and Drama play a vital role in giving a message to all age groups, few accept, and a few explore Seeing different diverse characters in a movie will create a good feel through movies and TV shows and understand how they live their lives on the other side of the world. Not all-time superheroes should be from western countries, there can be superheroes all around and Oscar-award-winning entertainers can be from different places who live elsewhere.
    Representation of such characters in movies and TV shows should be admitted. Producers look only for Profit, for example. In any personal care product advertisement, it is sure the producer prefers a white woman over anyone else highlighted as negative – but the reality is different and conveys the wrong message to the audience. Producers should think of diverse characters to understand the target audience from different cultures and localities. If a black woman is healthy, as a Doctor, a Scientist, or an Astronaut I’m sure they too can make a good profit, it's responsible for Producers to represent such unique character value to every audience they target. Black Panther is one such film made representing their society and the safety of his people, which is still the highest-grossing independent superhero film, the third highest-grossing film of the Marvel Studios

    Diversity must be present in films because in my view film conveys a message, even if it is not targeted, but all actions affect our lives without our desire or knowledge, and so with films there was a spectacle of scientists. You may notice that they are trying to save humanity or something, but otherwise, you notice that they are white, and this may suggest to you that blacks are stupid. You are not the one who said this, but your subconscious mind considered it the truth of everything that has a measure, and I say that the measure of the success of films is the audience's interaction with them and their reactions. For example, the movie "The Godfather" people interacted greatly with it, for example, according to a 2009 survey of Americans, the percentage of Italian Americans who are active in Mafia movements is 74%, although it does not exceed 0.00782% due to what was mentioned in the film.

In 2022the first Muslim heroine appeared, and when I saw the announcement of her appearanceI told myself that I had been waiting for something like this to happen all my life I did not see anything similar when I was younger When I saw her I felt that she was similar to me and close to her I considered her a role model and expressed me as a MuslimI felt that this work was the window of Muslims to the world.

    How boring we are all the same, wearing the same clothes, doing the same errands, celebrating the same way, holding the same beliefs. When we are different and diverse, life becomes more beautiful, becomes richer, full of surprises, it is impossible to achieve this unless we respect the difference in one, in beliefs and abilities, and in races, at the same time they are citizens with the same rights and the same duties.
    There are stars of African origin that cannot be imagined in American cinema without their contributions. Hollywood has always been one of the most entertainment industries in the world, but it was not without some racism, especially in the early days when actors of African origin were given roles that were fewer in number, size and importance than those assigned to them. To the white actors.
    But with time, the space given to stars of African origin has increased, and they have been given leading roles, which can be classified as one of the most important roles in the history of cinema and which should not be in vain without appreciation. Star example: Denzel Washington is the most award-winning black actor. During his career, Washington played many landmark roles that won critical acclaim, not just the audience's love. Among those roles was what was related to issues of racism and racial discrimination, such as his starring in the movie "Malcolm X", in which he played the role of a human rights activist.

Diversity may sometimes help us to see new people from different religions and we have to get to know them and their heritage, so we can learn how to deal with people of different religions, races and nationalities! It is important to see diversity in the movies, because sometimes you might like a movie that you don’t know about its characters, their religion, or their culture, and you may ask yourself that this is very amazing.

When you loved this work, this acting, this place, how they live, and they have beautiful similarities , Ensure that it is represented correctly. If there is no racism, discrimination, or bad words, for example that will be ammazing .It is also important for there to be partnerships, cooperation and love among them, and so the films can make sure that this work is correct and that it does not harm society in anything and is suitable for all ages.

    and customs and traditions.
    Good acting is achieved when we choose the characters correctly and put them in the right place, taking into account diversity.

    An interesting topic is the quality of films that are shown on television screens. They either affect negatively and may positively affect the mentality of viewers.
    For example, children imitate some action and drama movements and are affected by them
    It is also important to diversify the culture of showing films, for example, according to the nature and quality of the countries in which they are shown. They may be socially, religiously and culturally stable countries. Films that contradict the nature of life in these countries are shown, and thus negatively affect the nature of customs and traditions in these countries. Therefore, the nature of policies and the diversification of films that support a symbol must be taken into account. Or national, religious or educational values ​​because the film community is affected by them, so attention must be paid to the presentation format

I also think one of the reasons for the success of these films and the attachment and influence of viewers on them is the diversity that makes us as viewers curious to get to know these people closely, and I believe that there is a lot to learn about and discover outside.

    The world is not mono-ethnic; It's diversity, the diversity of cultures and nationalities. But most of our films focus on ethnic actors, mostly white, for profit. This has been a problem for Hollywood in the past, and I think it depends on the country in which the film is shown. For example, there was a black cheetah, and all its actors were black and it didn't affect its success.... Maybe if the white sex were necessary, the movie would have failed. However, the film was a huge success and a financial gain, pushing many non-white and Asian races to watch the film. The success of the Black Panther depends on Chadwick Bozeman's ability to act, even if he was black or white, male or female, would not affect his success. What matters is the plot of the film, the sequence of its events, and the influence of its subject matter. In my view, diversity is necessary because it is necessary to watch a film that shows all actors, children or women or men, and tha media technology has become in every country and in every home, so it is necessary to have diversity and not racism.

    Thinking on diversity in terms of color,sex, and class is the traditional approach But variety also refers to things like culture , ethnicity, politics,age, and religion, These groupings each contain individuals with distinctive appearances,behaviors, and mindsets.
    Similar to other disciplines, variety does not require specialization. The diversity idea extends beyond issues of race. Focusing on a small number of topic occasionally works better than trying to cover everything . Additionally some issues _like race _ have a clear importance.
    Consideration of the various types of people in our world is an alternative way to think about diversity. According to the diversity principal , we need a variety of people ; some can come up with fresh ideas while other can put them into practice.

    We have been created on this earth, different in shape, color and race, to share, not to set up disputes. Since ancient times, there have been disputes over the difference of color between peoples.
    We find it important now to use films to present diversity between different people and communicate with them.
    Life is a stage for a big movie. When the heroes of films are diverse, between Africans, Asians, whites and blacks, and with roles that are suitable for everyone, we do not focus the roles of evil for a particular group.
    At that time, we find that young people and children people see the world with a new perspective that we are all equal and there are no differences.

    are judged due to their skin,color,race and religion. Film have important role to remove this judgement. In order to remove Judgement from the society film industries should give chance to those people who are judged by their color,caste,gender,race and religion.If these people will be in film industry there will be easy to control the inequality and judgement from the society. So I think diversity in film is very important to remove the social problem.

    We humans, are able to understand any concept better once it is shown as visuals to us. Same case is with diversity. In my perspective, showing healthy representation of diversity in the cinema especially through the much loved MCU is important. Almost all people around the world idolise characters from the MCU in some way or another. As quoted by Maya Angelou diversity is just like a rich tapestry with threads from different background, religions, sexualities and more. And to make this tapestry inclusive and beautiful we need to put diversity in forms of cinematic expression. Marvel has done a great job representing Asian, Black, LGBTQ+, Hispanic and women as protagonists and bringing them to the world stage. Through watching these movies it is so easy now to actually consider diversity and intermingling of all races as something to be though about. Diversity shouldn't be represented as just a topic for a great discussion, it should be something as normal as our daily lives.

    according to me, diversity is the ability for differences to coexist together, with some type of mutual understanding or acceptance present. Also, diversity means inclusion of everyone and inclusion of everyone's viewpoints and perspectives .For this reason, diverse representation on television is best in raising awareness, empowering individuals of historically oppressed groups, and expanding career opportunities for underrepresented groups in society .Diversity in popular movies and television series matters a lot because when we are describing an accurate portrayal of particular under-represented group in a society it makes them happy and also encourage them because the film industry makes them popular and well-known to the society which provide job opportunities and also reap more benefit to them. Diversity increase productivity to economic growth which tends to provide more creative and better at problem solving . Movies related to diversity help us to explore another culture , languages , literature and arts ,so on. Movies like BLACK PANTHER shows how the people in wakanda and how they followed there culture and activities when choosing their king and also show how they solve and manage when a problematic situation arise among them .

Black Panther shows diversity and relates to life to show anybody can be something good or like batman grew up with no parents and no powers but used his high IQ to fight crime and protect the city. Diversity helps to create meaning and helps people be unique. How do you feel diversity helps?

    Diversity in films is not only a requirement of minority organizations, but also the advertising industry prefers to invest in a diverse environment, I believe that diversity in races can cause gaining self-confidence, especially for people with dark skin, always films aimed at success motivate the underachievers to reach goals and achieve successes.
    The directors must continue to produce diverse, purposeful and stimulating films.
    In 2004, Anthony Linsing Antonio, a professor at Stanford School of Education, teamed up with five colleagues at UCLA and other global institutions to test the effect of racial difference on difference of opinion in small group discussions. More than 350 students from three universities participated in this study. The researchers asked the students to discuss a popular social issue (either child labor or the death penalty) for no more than 15 minutes. The researchers made a note of bold and different points of view, and then asked black and white members to pass those ideas on to their groups. When black people put forward views contrary to that of a group of whites, their ideas were very well received, as members considered them to be creative and broadening the horizons of thinking.Predictably, the verse was reversed when a white person offered the same view, his views met with disapproval by group members. The lesson here is: when we hear a dissenting opinion from someone who is different from us, it causes us to think about it more carefully, which is not the case if the person is similar to us.

If I were a director, I would have diversified the choice of people.

    Away from similar things that sometimes bring boredom and unhappiness
    Likewise, the diversity of films is beautiful and required so that everyone can watch it with different cultures, multiple dialects, and the strange customs and traditions of each region.
    People get to know each other through movies, despite the distance
    In terms of language, religion, clothing, food and other things.
    Most people began to learn new languages ​​and translation languages ​​in order to know the accents of actors they admired or to imitate a movie of interest to them.
    Diversity adds an imprint to the viewer
    No matter the diversity of dialects, religions or skin color.

    Diversity is the existence of a wide range of various social groups in our society.Age, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender,econmic status, etc. are all examples of diversity. In contemporary society, diversity representation in television and film is crucial. Even while represen has significantly improved over time, much work remains

    A large audience won't be able to relate if there is a lack of diversity in movies and television shows, which are not only intended to be entertaining but alse to contain characteristics that people can relate to Over the years,people with Disabilities have been underrepresnted. Ethnic minorities have consistently been stereotyped and overused in media over the years,much like women. However, like women,they have started to take on leading roles,like Chadwick Boseman in Black panther


    The LGBT Community has historically been associated with negative connotations in movies.


    The Oscars have taken action by establishing rules regarding how films are nominated that are centered on the diversity content of their films and how much it contains, as well as the requirement that at least one actor from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group must be cast in a significant role.

    I feel that it is important to see diversity in films because when people see the effects that diversity can make, they would not make the same mistake in their life. Seeing influences more than hearing.

    I would say that the best example for this question is "Raya and the Last dragon". In that movie they have beautifully represented how diversity leads to problems and the way to solve it is belief in others.

    Diversity in films increases inclusivity. People from different races, ethnicities, cultures, and religion get included in these films which gives the audience a bigger picture to look at. We are often quick to judge and find different cultures abnormal or weird. In this case, diverse movies might help normalise different cultures and promote diversity.
    I feel that for correct representation, film makers should focus more on highlighting the reality rather than adding a lot of spice to the movie. Often people dislike movies because they exaggerate a lot. Making the movie engaging is important, yet, the real meaning or purpose should not get hidden.

    I think it is important for the films to be diversified, because if the films remain in one genre only, we will get tired of watching films, and thus the number of views will decrease. It is possible by making the story of the movie or the series the real story so that people can take a lesson.

It is also possible to expand the knowledge of other societies in terms of learning their language through Movies, about myself, when I watch various films from different countries and cultures, I feel that the world is small, as I feel that I got to know them in my country, so a person’s culture increases and his thinking can be changed for the better and new things can be learned from other cultures.

    Movies and series should represent people of different nationalities but without much mockery on their insecurities or in a degrading manner. Instead they could represent their uniqueness, what makes them different and to learn new things from them, their culture and history. Everyone has different thought processes, points of view and theories of life. We learn about the culture and characteristics of people of different countries mostly through movies and tv shows. If we are impressed by their slang or fashion or their habits, it's mainly because of these movies. Hollywood movies are famous around the world and today's youth watch more films than they read books or newspapers. That's our way of learning about others and Covid has brought us even closer to technology and films. We learn things, ideas, whether positive or negative, we are influenced by them from these movies. Movies like Black Panther make us show respect to everyone regardless of our differences. Diversity in representation won't make them a stranger to us and will help us to be familiar with them, their accent, language, culture, etc, and connect us with people of various nations with ease.Therefore it's necessary to represent diverse cultures and people in order to inspire everyone and change their perspective towards gender, race, culture, nationality, etc,. Film industries do face challenges in producing diverse movies like low funding, less support.. But business leaders can lend a hand with their funds and help them to successfully produce the films and we should also start watching them in order to encourage these films and learn about different people.

    In the world we live in today the media has a really big role in influencing individuals especially young people and there is a belief that if we train the younger generation the future would be secure and one way to ensure this is by dealing with the issue of stereotype. If the movie is having a cast with a particular cultural background it can often break certain ideologies that come with the culture through plot development. Not only does on-screen representation give us the chance to see outside of our misconceptions , but it also allows others especially those who feel inferior and neglected to feel included and seen.
    Apart from the movie Black Panther other movies like Woman King express women in the light and promotes the issue of gender equality showing that the female gender can do anything.

    Is diversity important in film?

    ~ Y es , diversity is quite important in films because it makes each of us unique and includes our backgrounds, personality, life experiences and beliefs, all of the things that make us who we are. Diversity In Hollywood Will Lead to Versatility in Actors
    When there is only one kind of actor, for example, a white male, not every role or idea can be fulfilled. Allowing actors of all backgrounds the same opportunities as these white movie stars can create versatility in their performance and in the film itself, which also influences people by what they see.

    Well I personally think that diversity in films is a very important because it helps bring people together both in mind and body and it also promotes global and world peace and is a very effective weapon against the global ravaging enemy, RACISM. For this cause, the representation of diverse races, and groups with tribal or religious groups in films and movies on the media like the television or internet is a very important and critical step because it helps us to raise awareness , enlightening and empowering people that have been discriminated against for a very long period of time. other examples are;
    Shang chi and the legend of the ten rings: Simu Liu in this films represents the race from the Asian part of the world.
    This helps to reduce the stereotypical mindset of people and possibly a whole generation

    Diversity in films is important because it portrays the day to day activities of the society. It is not only the representation on screen but also it makes us to think more and allows us to feel connected. A good diverse movie can bring more success, promote inclusion and acceptance, attracts a bigger audience and teaches us that everyone deserves to tell their story. It can also brake the stereotypes of minority groups. A film company has to produce a film in such a way that it was accepted by all the groups and it should not hurt the sentiments of minority groups. Representation should be given to all persons irrespective of race,gender, nationality,etc.

    It is important to see diversity in films because if just one race were allowed to be on the movie I am sure less people would watch it but if you see a person with your color or race then the movie might just feel better knowing that someone represents your race or color. I think that films can do representation right by just including multiple races in one movie or make like 1 movie with one race and then another race for a movie and so on and I think the people would be happy if they saw films like that.

    It is important to see diversity in films since it make viewers feel connected to the people behind the films. This can include ethnicity,religion, culture, and age. This can anchor the viewer and keep them interested, but representing in the wrong way can lead to stereotypes. This can lead to hate to a certain religion,ethnicity, gender, or culture. Black Panther portrayed Africa as a rich continent, which is correct. If they portrayed Africans as poor from a big studio like Marvel, Africans would get hated. Black Panther captures power of the people in the movie.

I believe we need to see diversity because if we don't we won't be introduced to the cultures around us, the beauty of colored people. In many shows, and movies many colored people are stereotyped and people are influenced by what they see. I believe directors can do representation right by studying the cultures that way nothing can be offensive.

Just adding three coloured people and one disabled person is not going to make a difference. Diversity is equality it means that we put our differences aside and it is a combination of our differences that shape our view of the world.

  • innovative_kiwifruit | Mayflower Centre | Romania 16 Nov 2022

    Diversity in films is important because it will be boring to see the same white actors who are mostly powerful. On the other hand, if the movie is made after a book, the directors should get actors that are similar to the descriptions in the original novel. For example, they couldn't use actors that are white to a historical black person, and vice versa.

  • artistic_conversation | Mayflower Centre | Romania 16 Nov 2022

    Diversity is important for me and also important in movies. A movie with all the characters having the same race, nationality and gender would just be boring. On the other hand, a movie with diversed characters wich have different origins and stereotypes can have more opportunities in expending the story, having a sequel and even making it popular because of the character's diversity!
    An example is the new Litlle Mermaid film coming out in 2023. Because Ariel (the main character) was a white character in the animated film and beacuse the main actress is black in the new movie, it caused a lot of controversy that made the movie popular! Now, most of the opinions on this movie were mixed and now, most of the people are exited for this movie to come out!

    In filims diversity can be brought about with a good story line , casting by diverse people , screen play etc.

But people still complain that there are too many black people in Black Panther so I liked how in the second movie they did a mix of people from different nations.

    Diversity is an important thing, especially in films. Why? Because in this generation our subconscious mind is affected by everything we see or hear, and we are used to the hero or heroine being beautiful with white skin and colored eyes, and this thing is bad because acting does not depend on appearances, but rather on the skill of the actor and his ability to communicate the purpose of the film, and in the movie Black Panther we saw Diversity and this was an amazing thing, and this thing will make people think more consciously, accept diversity and change their beliefs. I believe that more of these films should be made to spread awareness on this subject.

Diversity is important in films as all people of colour need to feel like they belong in a world with people that are different skin colours. It is also important because people of the opposite colour need to see different perspectives in movies, even movies for younger children.

    Society, such as the criminal system, the media and the workplace are flawed in their views of race.

    I think different film characters should portray the backstories or history they are representing in a film. For instance, Nelson Mandela in a film should be black whilst Snow White should be played by a white actress due to the story being based around a pale white skin.

    On the other hand, some historical based fictional shows such as Bridgerton, ignore race in their tv show and just use diverse actors and actresses for roles that would have been historically a white person. This is good as it helps people to look past the idea of race and just appreciate the skill of the actor and actresses.

  • wise_banjo | Ormiston Bushfield Academy | United Kingdom 18 Nov 2022

    I believe that in modern society, we need to speak up and declare the need for more films featuring people of diverse races and ethnicities as well as the need for respect for those of these backgrounds because no two persons are alike, and each has unique characteristics. People must be free to be themselves without facing any prejudice. One of the topics that has received the most attention globally and for the longest period is racism. Racism unfortunately persists even in today's technologically advanced society; else, this post wouldn't be necessary. The American Heritage College Dictionary describes racism as simply "discrimination or prejudice based on race." We need more role models who represent different nations or different ethnicities, as well as more women, to represent us younger people in this culture. These ladies should be people we can look up to and say, "I want to be as successful as her."

I was very excited about the details of the subjects you presented..... All topics were distinctive.... I was touched by the comment for ...(ingenious_library | Start-Rite Schools | Nigeria)...on the diversity of films because we live in a diverse world of people of different civilizations, nationalities and religions, living in a technological and cultural age...... Most of us spend time in front of the television or the phone, and movies have a different role than entertainment. They really affect our minds and shape our cultures...... It is better to look at a rainbow than just black and white.... I strongly believe in our right to equality and representation. We are all the same - white, black, Asian or Latino: many people who are marginalized and banned from working are part of the community in which we live..... I have never forgotten the pictures of that child when the movie Incanto was released, and when the child saw the character Antonio Madrigel, he stood by the television, because the character looked a little bit like a child, and the child was proud.... It's wonderful that people see themselves in movies....... The more people in the world love each other and cooperate indiscriminately, the more the world evolves, the more problems we face.

    It is important to have diversity in any movies or tv shows because people don't want to just see one specific race in what they're watching. People want to watch a show with their kind or other races other than white people. We wanna see indian people,black people, asian people, etc. The reason I think diversity is important is because who wants to see the same people on the screen every time. They people on the screen also show us how they have to live and it's nice and educational to know how other people live in other countries.

Even when people of color (not just black) are shown on screen, it can be done very wrong and make a person feel like "I don't even want it". When Television was created (1927) people, not of color were going to show either way it went because of the time. When they show people of color, it was shown in a negative way, everybody but white people were shown as rich and dramatic... Now (2022) people get a better representation of all races, and everybody gets better perspectives.

It gives you a vision on people who did great things who are like you, no this doesn't mean you can't be great just because you don't see no one like you out there, but It would be helpful. We already know that in most movies there is no one really with color on their skin, but Black Panther does include color and many other movies. Movies with diversity show many things they show culture, religion, struggles, and different stories . They help people understand what other people go through, and help you be aware and knowledgeable about your surroundings. It also helps you learn more about your culture or religion. Overall Diversity is very important to help young people and older people all feel included.

When there is diversity in a film it is showing that the age group, religion, race, ethnicity, or sex is being represented. When things like that are represented it leads more to a groundbreaking film. This is the reason why black panther: wakanda forever is here now. By all means I don't mean stereotyping them, I'm saying they should show their culture and how they do their traditions. Now to simply answer the question why diversity is so important in a short way, diversity will work to communicate different ideas and carry different meanings.

    Well, seeing diversity and representation in films and movies is important because it's realistic.In the real world there is more than just one religion,there's more that just one disability and of course there's more than just one race.If we see a white person whose life is perfect,no disabilities,and religion everybody knows and respects, and no POC near them it wouldn't be realistic at all.But,if you see all different types of races,all sorts of religions and many disabilities it would seem more realistic.Representation is also very important because some of us aren't as recognized or cared about as others.for an example Im not like other black women,for privacy i wont say alot about myself but my gender identity,sexuality and race aren't seen or normalized in movies or tv shows.WE need more recognition and WE need diversity in movies.All of us want to be normalized and recognized.

    Why it is important to see diversity in films is because we need to see a difference in movies like what they did on friday but in my opinion they represented african americans wrong as an example in this particular movie they showed people with my skin tone selling drugs shooting people and fighting and I don't think that represents what african americans do on the daily basis. And how can films make sure they represent us right by asking african americans what they would do on the daily basis instead of stereotyping african americans.

    It is very important to see diversity films. I think people as myself would like to see more cultural movies and shows because there are too many whites in every movie even in diverse movies. I would like to see movies with more african americans in their own movies. I feel that non-cultural people get too many films with them in it. People of color can at least have a few movies of their people.

    It is important to see diversity in films because diverse representation on television is critical, raising awareness, empowering individuals of historically oppressed groups, and expanding career opportunities for underrepresented groups in entertainment.

    Every culture, every nationality, every single person sees the world in a different way. Similarly, every culture, nationality, and person has different knowledge, perspectives, and points of view. When all of these different views are shared together, miracles can happen.

    A things that has become familiar for people of color is low representation in films and in older films people of color in the US were portrayed as criminals and thugs but what people of color need is representation, black panther in which the protagonist(Chadwick Bosman) was an African American and the movie featured many African actors it was the first of it's kind, it portrayed Africa in a positive way it was the first of it's kind to hit the mainstream.
    Yes minorities need equal and fair representation in films in media because films are a big cause of stigmatization of races.
    And fair representation in films can reduce the stigma caused by previous media.

    it is important to see diversity in films because it could let you know how many people that are like you and it makes people feel more of society. It could probably make people feel more history by people seeing their diversity in shows/movies. Films could show it right by showing their history and other people could feel good about themselves because they have seen their history.

    Because it will make more actors show versality.

  • joyful_argument | Pointe South Middle School K | United States of America 18 Nov 2022

    I think diversity is important to see in things like tv shows, movies, cartoons, ETC because it can show and teach kids and 'people' how to not treat people that's not their skin color different like their an animal and a monster. Having multi colored people in things people watch can also help with the history back then. Segregation being one them, segregation put a big racial change on the world. So showing all people coming together as one will help alot with diversity.

    Why is it important to see diversity in films?

    Well,It's important to see diversity in films because it can teach younger people that there are more than one specific group in this world,it can also teach younger people that it's okay to be yourself.growing up I had a friend who was worried about being bullied because of where she was born,for some reason at my old school, not a lot of people knew about Greece. My friend was from Greece and she never told anyone about it because not a lot of people knew about it.The next day she told me about a movie she watched,and how there were some people that were from Greece.She was happy about seeing people from Greece in a movie and decide to tell more people.Im glad she was happy about expressing where she was from because of a movie she saw.I want more diversity in films so people aren't ashamed about who they are,where they're from, or what they need.I thought i would get bullied for being gay but i've seen so many movies,cartoons,and tv shows that completely normalizes it and i felt less scared and ashamed.I've made friends we are similar to me and accept me because of it.

    I know these examples were from my experiences but these still are very important to me.I'm glad that my old friend saw some diversity in a movie and started expressing herself more because of it.

    It is very important to have diversity in any film because It can be racist to mostly any race to not have any diversity at all which could make people mad and report the film.

  • spirited_plum | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 18 Nov 2022

    Why is it important to see diversity in films?

    It is important to see diversity in films because it gives an accurate portrayal of under-and over represented groups of society.
    Women and POC don't get a lot of love and respect in the real world,so people started making movies,cartoons, and even videos on social media expressing more love and representation nowadays.
    If we keep showing representation in films maybe in the real world people will start normalizing POC,queers,Women,religions,and disabilities.
    I want to live in a world that will normalize me just existing.
    Showing diversity in shows will raise awareness, empowering individuals of historically oppressed groups, and expanding career opportunities for underrepresented groups in entertainment.

    I think its important to see diversity in movies because people can see it a lot because it would be cool

  • excited_ladder | Adamson Middle School H | United States of America 18 Nov 2022

    The reason why diversity is important is that in movies there's bearly anyone but just one culture. Some movies don't really have culture and we need a lot of cultures in some movies like asian, hispanic, black, and etc. They are important because we support people like the culture we see on tv and movies.

  • adventurous_idea | Adamson Middle School H | United States of America 18 Nov 2022

    It's important to see diversity in films because sometimes little kids that are color look at movies and see only white people and they think that only white people are able to be in the industry so when they see movies and tv shows with their colors they get hope that they can be something when they get older which is good to see little kids try their hardest and dream on.

  • plucky_wallaby | Adamson Middle School H | United States of America 18 Nov 2022

    Because diversity teaches us how to act, informs our choices, gives hope, is inclusive, and the inclusion of everyone's vision and vision is significant to a better community. It also encourages our imagination, every culture, and everyone to see the world from a different vision.

    I personally think that we should have more people of different racial backgrounds on tv. Why? Well, if we only see white people as the main characters or superheroes, we will belive that they can't be like that just because of their skin color. Think about all the marvel heroes like Iron man, Spiderman , Wonder woman, the hulk, and more. They are all white. The films should have all kinds of movie characters because we need to get used to diversity. If we were all the same, life would be boring. I think that Disney making the new actor of Ariel a black woman is amazing.
    On the other hand, I'm not saying that we should have a black Snow White or a white Black Panther. We should keep to reality as much as we can, and the reality is that human beings are diverse. But also that most people in Europe used to be white and most people in Africa are still black. I think distorting reality for the sake of diversity is wrong. For example, a Korean Queen Victoria just wouldn't make sense.
    Another thing, I think it actually depends on the acting skill too. If a certain black man has better acting skill than a white man, then it's fair to hire him and vice versa. In conclusion I think it is important to show diversity as this is our reality but we should not discount people's ability.

  • glad_leopard | Pointe South Middle School L | United States of America 18 Nov 2022

    I think diversity is important in film because it represents their country culture, and other can know more about their culture and maybe they will have another look at them that they just human like everybody else.

  • awesome_harmonica | Pointe South Middle School L | United States of America 18 Nov 2022

    The reason why diversity in movies actually MATTERS is due to the fact that the discrimination of black people due to jim crow laws, etc. There are still a lot of "racist people", and basically, karens. A karen is what the internet calls someone who "thinks" they can control everything and they have a opinion on everything, meaning they HATE everything or anyone. This is also a big factor for racism. The point of diversity in movies is to see yourself and say something like; "Is that me?" because a lot of kids said they wanted to be many superheros when they grow up. Seeing themself in a movie, a TV show, or a cartoon makes them think that they aren't alone in this world.

  • warm_satsuma | Pointe South Middle School L | United States of America 18 Nov 2022

    I say yes because i see that it show how that our culture like as a example black,white,mexican, and any different people in the world. It also show how that it can be something showing be a true story.

  • eager_seed | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 19 Nov 2022

    I think it is important to see diversity in films because people are influenced by what they see. Diversity in popular movies and television series matters because an accurate portrayal of society affects both the over-and under-represented groups of society. Whereas an inaccurate, often offensive portrayal is harmful to both entire communities and also individual people, Such movies help a lot in overthrowing the prejudices in society and displaying a message of unity in diversity to the viewers . I advise everyone when watching movies that they are not only fot environment, but we must think and focus on the idea that the movie conveys to us.

  • phenomenal_lion | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 19 Nov 2022

    I think it is important to see diversity in films because people are influenced by what they see. So when they see diversity being represented, they will start to think more carefully about it.
    Also, it is good, because the world is dirverse. People need to see the truth about what has happened through history in diverity. Everybody is different and we should be respected for this. But the truth is-not everybody treates others fairly. We all have prejudices that can influence us.

    Films could make sure they get the representations by making a diversity charter that tells you what you are going to do. People also need to make sure they know what diversity they are trying to represent. We need to address the things we are blind to. Eg: Race; gender; age; even economic class.

    Black Panther movie was refreshing because it celebrated the African countries culture in true sense! For instance, Raj of Big Bang Theory or Appu of Simsons represented Indians in a poor way and it does not represent what India or Indians truly are!

    India is not a country of cows or poor people or people with poor English slang! This is also a country which has produced some best scientists, inventors, entrepreneurs, economists, a country bubbling with young minds and energy willing to go anywhere to achieve big things.

    But such poor portrayal only makes people across the Globe to believe what they see! Enormous efforts are required to change that perspective! Hence diverse and correct representation is very important. For instance, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, a well-known Indian actor, now turned Hollywood actor, she cannot do a role written for a black woman character or a Chinese or Korean character in holly wood, but definitely can play a general American role right? Why aren't such roles offered to all? Beauty of America is multi culture. Why can't a good representation or diversity happen from everywhere that represents America in its full glory!

    Having said that, the right role should be given to the right people who represent the cause. In India a movie a biopic named "TAALI" is being played by former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen, also a well-known actor in India. While she may do justice to the role taken, the sad part is the biopic is about a transgender Gauri, who worked tirelessly for the rise of her community. It would only be fair to see the role of Gauri, being played by a transgender rather than Ms.Sen, isn't?

    The filmmakers should do their homework before the film making happens. Films are about entertainment. At the same time, it comes with responsibility too! Wrong representation should never be entertained even for entertainment!
