Different Country Perspectives on World Events in Film
It’s a common subject for films to cover their respective countries’ events, especially if they take place on a global scale. Films like Schindler’s List and Life is Beautiful are made in different countries, yet portray the topic of being in a concentration camp in WW2 differently. It would be interesting to analyze how films portray different parts of the world in other countries. It could help a viewer gain perspective on how filmmakers choose to depict these events.

We would need to realize the advantages and disadvantages for both of these special effects if we are to bring out their full potential.
