Film | Class Dismissed: How TV Frames the Working Class
Les séries télévisées américaines contribuent à forger l’image que la classe ouvrière a d’elle-même. Voici un excellent documentaire à visionner et à partager pour comprendre le rôle de ces médias dans la disparition d’une conscience de classe aux USA et en Amérique du Nord.
Sitcoms, reality shows, police dramas are actively constructing America’s working class self-representation or in other words the image the workers have of themselves. Here’s an excellent documentary to watch, and share, in the mean of raising awareness about how corporate media drives us workers away from the consciousness of being who we are as a social economic and political class today.
“Class Dismissed dares to open our eyes to television’s role in disappearing class from the American consciousness. The carefully crafted interviews set against humorous clips show how stereotypes of working-class buffoons distance us from the reality of corporate greed. Class Dismissed drives home the connections between class, gender and race to ongoing systems of inequality and reminds viewers of the importance of raising class consciousness if we are to succeed in forging meaningful models of citizenship in the future.
