To what extent has the film raised the target audiences knowledge and understanding of how the theme/event influenced the central characters?
The documentary was successful at raising the target audience’s knowledge and understanding of the theme/event that influenced the central characters. The topic of our documentary is about “Hong Kong in the 1960s.” My group and I focused on the important events during the 60s that changed the majority of people’s lives either in a positive or negative perspective. Through the interviews, we were successful at demonstrating how these impacts in the 60s affected these individuals. We gave a balance of 2 negatives and 1 positive perspective to help the audience understand both sides of the situation. Moreover, the narration of the documentary provided enough context for the audience to have a better understanding and further developed knowledge on the situation. We looked at a variety of sources in order to provide detailed facts and information for context. All these changes and decisions we made for our documentary helped influence the central characters because all these facts provided by our primary and secondary sources are relevant. Hence being more relatable to the purpose of this documentary and what the central characters were experiencing at that period of time.
