Bonnie & Clyde

Screen Shot 2017-06-02 at 18.10.12.png

Bonnie & Clyde were real but their story was transformed by Hollywood for the famous movie featuring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway in 1967.

Gangster movies are based on real facts but they glamorize them.

Bonnie & Clyde are perfect to create a film: they embody BOTH love and violence. The individualistic values they stand for can relate to the self-made men or rags-to-riches stories but they get rich and famous breaking the law.

BAC BLANC segregation corrections!

Each time a disaster occurs people > everyone is more helpful and kinder.  It’s as if disasters > traumatic events pulled everyone together and urged everyone to take care of eachother. I think depending on the trauma everyone feels vulnerable. We feel as if it might happen to us. We could also have been the victim of the same disaster. That’s how we realize that everything is relative and doesn’t matter so much. For example when a tsunami happens / take place on the spot rescue teams or on-lookers help each other and save those who are injured / wounded. 

Most people think that disasters bring people together because we feel the same. For example we are sad for the war in Syria or Irak as we imagine that if we had been in the same situation we would have left our country and we would have felt in shock too. That’s why most people believe disasters pull us together as we all feel compassionate when we hear tragic news on TV.
