  • 4.  All the three films show Africa in crisis.  Blood Diamond - The title refers to blood diamonds, which are diamonds mined in African war zones and sold to finance conflicts, and thereby profit warlords and diamond companies across the world. Set during Sierra Leone Civil War in 1996-1999, the film shows a country torn apart by the struggle between government soldiers and rebel forces. The film portrays many of the atrocities of that war, including the rebels' amputation of people's hands to discourage them from voting in upcoming elections.
  • 5.  Lord of War - Nicolas Cage plays an illegal arms dealer with similarities to post-Soviet arms dealers Viktor Boutand Leonid Minin. Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage), an American gunrunner of Ukrainian origin, stands in a sea of spent shell casings. He states that there is one firearm for one out of every twelve people on the planet, and he wants to figure out how to arm the other eleven.
  • 6.  Last King of Scotland - The Last King of Scotland tells the fictional story of Dr. Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy), a young Scottish doctor who travels to Uganda and becomes the personal physician to the dictator Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker). The film is based on factual events of Amin's rule.
  • 7.  Representations – How is Africa represented – good, bad why? Is this the same across all three films? Are they contrasted in anyway? Is it Western culture bias? African bias?  Corruption – How does it show corruption? Why does Africa have corruption? In what form? Law, War, weapons? How is then implemented? Historical background.
  • 8.  Social and political aspects – Historical background. Historical accuracy? Is it fictional or not? Culture? Views from other cultures? Impact on society.  Western perceptions – How this could be bias? Western influences on film? And the making for audiences? How the film impacted on countries? And if it showed true to Africa, and its issues.
