    Abstract

    Films are an important means of conveying cultural and political stories of the times. In their narrative construction and storytelling they create a public pedagogy. For hooks (1996), “cinema assumes a pedagogical role in the lives of many people. It may not be the intent of a film-maker to teach audiences anything, but that does not mean that lessons are not learned” (pp. 2–3).
