This was extremely common during or after war times regarding its coverage on politics, social and religion. Consequently, this restraint affected filmmakers’ handling on real and important issues that plagued their society. Therefore, they developed and employed new techniques such as allegory to examine, demonstrate and comment on critical issues that occurs contextually. Spanish Filmmaker, Carlos Saura undoubtedly used allegory as a result of the governmental body’s undeniable pressure to control content.

Tykwer uses distinctively visual techniques such as; low angled shots, split screen, close ups, flash-forwards, alternate realities, and fast-cutting to convey the global issues put forth by this movie in an effective way. Throughout the film ‘ Run Lola Run ’ Tykwer highlights the power of time, it’s inevitable and relentless march that steals away our fleeting lives is something that is obsessed over by the world at large. One of the ways that times power is conveyed in the film is through the use of many low-angled shots that occur periodically throughout the film. One of the scenes where this is most effective is the opening sequence of a large and terrifying clock, this shot suggests that time is a powerful and important character, something to be feared and paid attention to. Tykwer uses a split screen shot to emphasise times power; showing Manni standing alone, Lola sprinting in slow motion and a large clock rhythmically ticking, this is an effective way of characterising time and emphasising the power time holds of the lives of Manni and Lola.
In the move we see when Mona is being hauled away back to the castle dungeon as he is hauled away she shout out loud “I am an American, I am not an African”. It is there that we see her fellow Africans ancestors that were chained up together so they couldn’t escape or try to attack the white men that captured them and took away their freedom in this world. And it is there where she traveled in space back to her past as a house slave living the life as one of her enslaved ancestors. We also see that Joe who is the son of Nunu, who is a resistance leader and knows her knowledge of African custom and religion, unlike his mother Joe he believes that is not like the rest of the slaves. He rejects the culture just like Mona in the beginning of the movie, who was also lost her touch.

This day was baptized by the Black Brazilian Movement as the “National Day of Black Consciousness.” And Zumbi, to this day is considered the “Hero of the Americas” by many Afro-descendants from various countries. Following the end of slavery in 1888, the city of São Paulo began to grow rapidly and many European (Italians) and Asians (Japanese) immigrants arrived in the city to work in the new factories and new farms since the former slaves were excluded from that new economic model – “the industrial era”. During this era the black population moved to a situation of marginalization even worse than during the period of slavery. With the rapid urbanization of the city new life forms were influencing the lives of everyone.
Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech was delivered at Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963. In hopes of planting the seed of equality into every American’s heart and letting it flourish. King expresses his profound and powerfully emotional thoughts while also mentioning momentous decrees such as the Emancipation Proclamation and Declaration of Independence that were signed by our founding fathers in our nations early history.

His struggle made him a household name, and stimulated the attitude that it was Britain’s moral mission to help native people. This attitude of ‘moral mission’ however, was to pave the way to a legacy of undesirable consequences against the native people whom the explorers were trying to help: the enduring legacy of slavery. Unfortunately, European interference in Africa would soon involve more than the activities of explorers and missionaries, the continent was soon to be entangled in the world of European politics and the scramble for Africa. By the 1870s politicians like Benjamin Disraeli were tapping into a growing public enthusiasm for Empire, he himself previously referred to colonies as ‘millstones around our necks’. Disraeli and many European politicians came to see the domestic political usefulness of imperialism.
