Movies have an enormous value as an art form, but this value is multiplied when there are important messages enclosed in the undertone of the films. Oftentimes we say that a movie is good or bad based on how it transmits a message and raises awareness. However, in the spectators’ eyes, the message remains attached to the way they stage it. That’s why today we are going to recommend a set of movies that raise awareness. Films that sink into us for their way of telling us a story, above all about their background. So, while you watch them they will leave behind a taste of learning and reasons for reflection.

Inspired by plays like those of Passolini, some people tried to portray violence by forgetting that art always sustains some type of idea. Or, at the very least, attempts to transmit something meaningful which appeals to our dormant perceptions.
“Scandalizing is a right, just like being scandalized is a pleasure. While those who reject the pleasure of being scandalized are moralists.”
-Pier Paolo Passolini-
