Movies about Social Issues

“Social cinema” refers to a series of trends that developed especially in Europe in the 60s, which aimed to penetrate the community's political fabric. In spite of their significance, these productions do not match those of other films from the early 20th century until today, in terms of the narration and the ability to condition social changes throughout the world.
This section features dozens of topics (each with corresponding lists of films), thematically organised and all linked to the complexities of the world and society, from civil rights, economy, racism to crime.
