Dances with Wolves (1990) HQ trailer - YouTube

Dances with Wolves (1990) trailer
Ingvil Haaland Vandvik's insight:

The movie dancing with wolves is a story about a soldier who comes to America, the prejudice thoughts about the Indians, but when he get to know them he joins their side.

 

This movie is very similar to The Rabbit Proof Fence in my opinion, because it is also about the white man discovering a new country and being horrible to the people who already live there. 

 

The difference is that in this movie we follow the main character who changes his mind considering the Indians who already live in the land.

Trailer for the movie Australia.
Ingvil Haaland Vandvik's insight:

A movie placed in Australia from WW2, including themes as multiculturalism and equality. The main character gets attached to a little mixed raced boy and the government are looking for him, to send him to the cleansing island. Also the boy is unsure where he belongs, since the whites does not want him, and the black doesn't want him

Rabbit Proof Fence (2002) Trailer - YouTube

Directed by Phillip Noyce Executive Produced by Jeremy Thomas Twitter: @recordedpicture
Ingvil Haaland Vandvik's insight:

The Rabbit Proof Fence is a movie placed in Australia. Through the movie we follow three sisters fled from a christian school where they are being forced to live,  back to their family.

 

The movie emphasizes with the small aboriginals. They used to be the only population in Australia, who lived relatively peacefully among each other, until the white man discovered the land.

 

The movie shows how brutally the new settlers took over the country, conquered the best  land, stole their minors and put the older in reservoirs in horrifying hot and dry desserts.

Ingvil Haaland Vandvik's insight:

A movie about cultural differences. A Indian girl living in London, who is banned from playing football, and instead are being forced to marry a boy she doesn't even know.
