An external link[edit]

I just removed that link from the page because it was added by an IP from California Newsreel. It does seem to fit the page fairly well, but I'm probably not the best to evaluate it for inclusion, so I'm removing it. If you don't have a conflict of interest and believe it to be worthy of inclusion, please put it back. -- ke4roh 02:02, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Category "women screenwriters" up for discussion[edit]

Thought people interested in this article might like to know that Category:Women screenwriters is being considered for deletion. — scribblingwoman 02:29, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Are all changes clashes?[edit]

The subordinate nature in early cinema in Africa and the prominence of some cinematic roots in the work of European anthropologist, ethnographers and others that attempt an understanding of those that are not initially perceived the same as they should show us that when it comes to changes in a society or culture that there is not necessarily a clash and that if we look at or present something as a clash we seriously need to understand if that is our own subconscious imposition on others rather than the elements of that society or culture. Was Manouchka Kelly Labouba's Le Divorce a "clash" or merely the impact of the society and culture of up to that time on the divorce? US cinema had its Our Gang, Keaton Cops and Hop Along Cassidy comedies and action thrillers. Other countries had themes much different and influenced by the work of social scientists. If someone calls it a clash then how are we to know that we are imposing on another group who we have yet to understand. Are we imposing our own values on them instead of the values of their nuance coming through. Of course this is all for naught if you are unable to see the penumbra. It can be expressed by the two views that as long as something is not coercive, deceptive or injurious then what am I to say about someone else doing it. Versus, It is something that I do not like therefore it will not be done by anyone anywhere.66.74.176.59 (talk) 23:01, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
