When you have been treated so poorly by the people meant to protect you, you just give up. Did you get a chill reading this? This is a part of daily life of people of some races, just because they have more melanin in their skin. Terrifying, isn’t it? And this is exactly what happened to George Floyd, who was brutally murdered by police personnel in broad daylight. All this was portrayed on screen in the form of a movie “Homeroom”.
If you are interested in watching documentaries then I have “Val” as a option for you if you love the Batman character Bruce Wayne.
What is the Homeroom Movie About?
1. Black lives matter
Funds of about 6 million dollars allocated for the educational expenses of 36 thousand students were laundered to the youth outreach unit comprising the Oakland police department personnel. When confronted with the question if one should keep assumptions about someone? The officer shunned the question of a student.
This has brought fear in the mind of the students for law enforcement. The reality is that Prejudice still exists. This led them to raise voices and organising a rally on the school campus.
The covid-19 pandemic became the reason for the fall of their protest, but as they said, ‘coronavirus is different when you want to go and do things that cause the consciousness of the viewer to think of the deep implication and jeopardy, the families of black and brown, go through.
The movie raises some serious issues of the black struggle, the struggle that has been going on for years. Under the ignorance of bureaucrats and high classes, it has flourished more. Price of which George Floyd had to pay. The documentary has captured the plight of each student with full sincerity that it won’t take more than a second for you to resonate with them.
The narration of their pasts to the feelings they harboured, which led to their reform revolt. All of it is so heartbreaking that you will surely shed a tear or two.
2. Youth are our future
When the youth represents some issue, it matters because they are our future, and thus there is no greater power than the power of our youth. The Burden of the future of the human race falls onto the shoulders of this generation. And all around the world, these young lads have stood up to take ownership; everyone has to realize that a change is not too far. It’s also a tale to inspire new world leaders.
3. Loss of Connection Presented
The movie also raises the million-dollar concerns of students about the pandemic and loss of a sense of connection and comradery. They feel sad knowing that their graduation is going to happen virtually and they won’t be able to meet people physically.
With learning not being expressive anymore and staring at the screen for hours at once while attending a class, the movie does raise an argument in favor of humanity. All of us have yearned for social contact during this pandemic. The Movie is especially worth watching for this generation.
The movie captures a student’s 1st-year college life, full of chaos and building bonds, and personality development that aptly happens. We all individually explore our personalities in this time of our life. The struggle of students to just feel like kids again. The hallway and canteen that once used to buzz with laughter are now silent, with global pandemics and revolution on the way.
