Transcript of Group Mini Proj #2 Feminism and Film Violence: MAD MAX FURY

OVERVIEW//SUMMARY
MAD MAX: Fury Road (2015)
MAIN CHARACTER: FURIOSA
SETTING: Post-Apocalyptic
PLOT: Furiosa frees a terrible tyrant's wives and a war ensues
HISTORY OF THE MAD MAX FRANCHISE
This movie is not the first! There were three original Mad Max films created in the 1980s

· During the late 1970s and early 1980s there was a global oil crisis, which helped to inspired the earlier Mad Max movies.

· Mad Max, although are fun action packed films, they also are a social commentary since their dystopian reality is given context within truth of actual events.

· Fury Road is written, directed, and produced by George Miller who also created the three original movies.

The Over arching theme of Dismantling the Patriarchy

Examples of Feminism:
- Max gives Furiosa the gun to shoot
- Cutting of the chastity belts
- The man in the supporting character
SCENE 01
READING 02
"And that’s what makes the movie so forward-thinking: it’s not feminist because Theron’s character gets to engage in as much violence as any other action lead, but because the world director and writer George Miller has created shows the horror of sexism and the necessity of freedom from patriarchy."
READING 01
According to the director George Miller he, “was very interested in a female road warrior… And here she is, a character exactly equivalent to Max. They are protagonist/antagonist. They’re the ones who go at it from the beginning. She is on this mission, and max is a wild animal, trapped. And both of them are about their own survival…”

Q & A
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME!
SCENE 02
READING 03
SCENE 03
Name three things that can be done within a modern day society to avoid the unequal balance of power between men and women demonstrated in this film.

What are the significant differences between the portrayal of older women versus younger women in this film? How does age affect the roles they play?

Given the war-like nature of this society, how would you imagine they would treat female offspring versus male?

What role in this limited society do you think a woman would have her best chance of survival? Please give examples.



This article describes the film as a “Feminist-revolution movie of the year.
Which isn’t wrong, compared to a lot of other movies that have come out recently; none of which have really delve in to feminism or female empowerment (in a non-joking or politically correct way) at all.
