Question 2 Analyse how the writer helped you understand at least one timeless idea about people in the visual textIn the film Crash by Paul Haggis a timeless idea that the writer used that helped me understand the people in the film was stereotyping Stereotyping is timeless idea because it shows how we judge others by the way we look dress sound and by our skin colour We see stereotypical judgements when there has been a crash between Kim And Ria Jean moves closer to her husband Jean stereotypes Daniel their lock smith as a gang member and when John is talking to Shaniqua Johnson on the phoneThe film Crash gives us an insight to the stereotyping that was happening in Los Angeles 2004 Crash has many stories from racism to stereotyping that are intertwined into one about the Whites Blacks Latinos Asians Police and criminals One thing that happens over and over in the film is people making stereotypical judgements of one another which prevent them from seeing the real person standing in front of them A Mexican man is assumed to be in a gang and A Persian family is assumed to be an IraqiThe opening scene is where we are first introduced to the timeless idea of stereotyping In the opening scene there were skid marks all over the road because there had been a crash between Kim the Korean who had crashed into the back of Ria who is from Puerto Rico We first see Kim and Ria when they are arguing about whose fault the crash is Kim Says Mexicans no know how to drive she blake to fast which showed me how stereotypical Kim really is and it turns out that Ria is from Puerto Rico not Mexico Paul Haggis used dialogue to show what type of person Ria is Ria replies to Kim in a Mocking Asian tone I blake to fast I blake to fast Im sorry
