Film affects many lives in different ways. The film industry can control as much of its success because people try to relate to the storyline and see themselves in the storyline or a specific characters. Audience often choose a movie because they want it to make them feel a certain way. Since we as people are easily persuaded by media, we’re safe to explore many situations that might be impossible or in some cases too overwhelming to face in the real world. Is this how Reality shows became so popular? Are people escaping their own reality through film or looking for help in their own situations?
“In some cases therapist are using movies as a therapeutic tool to help their clients to express their feelings.” I find this statement interesting as I an employee at Mickira Productions is studying Sociology now in school. Some say they are finding that it is beneficial for some individuals that struggle with the ability to communicate their emotions and concerns. This technique is called Cinema Therapy or Movie Therapy. Many should know its a tool for help but not an answer to the patients issues.
