VI Cinefórum with the film 'La Ola' about education and mass manipulation (13/03/2018)

Next Wednesday, March 14 at 6:00 pm will be screened at Café Ficciones 'La Ola'.

After the viewing a debate on the film will open with the support of UMU researcher Juan José García Escribano.

This film is the VI session of the film forum 'Science on the big screen' organized by the Scientific Culture Unit.

'The Wave' is based on a real event that occurred in a California institute during 1967. The film tells the experiment called 'The Third Wave' by history professor Ron Jones.

The goal was to understand fascism through a 'game' in which students assumed ideas about discipline and feelings of community.

The sociologist emphasizes the importance of putting the role of education at the center of analysis to form free and critical citizens.

Also, the teacher explains that the film "invites reflection, showing the ease with which a skilled leader can handle the masses and revealing some of the mechanisms that can be used to achieve an instrumentation interested in them."

This initiative of the Unit of Scientific Culture (UCC) of the Vice-rectorate of Communication and Culture of the UMU aims to bring the scientific culture to society, with the collaboration of researchers from the University of Murcia.
