ENG 112

28th April 2021

The Film Black Panther celebrates the African Culture and the Black community. This movie is wildly based on the emphasis of African culture and beautifully expressed that throughout the whole movie.

 

 

At first, I would talk about the main character as he wears the Black Panther Suit, which has Wakanda Language written on it and is highly inspired by Wakanda itself. The suit was described as “Royal cloth” by Gina on her article. The women are dressed in Vibrant colors and they had their own unique styles to them. For example, Queen Ramonda’s crown and collar, it was an “African lace” inspired look. It was beige in color, almost like dirty blonde. Then T’Challa wears a Nigerian senator’s suit. As described by Gina, “It’s a tailored garment that has elaborate embroide on it” (Mcintypre 2018). For the female fighters or characters, the colors played an important role. They were all dressed in red, tight fitting outfits that enhanced their bodies. The color red made them look unstoppable, which is ironic because Red is used to indicate to stop, but here it was the opposite. The costumes are very eye catching too, so they had the audience’s attention.

Then I will start on the gorgeous makeup look that has been created on the characters. The makeup department researched the actual five tribes and recreated the looks just as they are on the characters so they didn’t disrespect the tribes or the culture. As mentioned in Kelly’s article, the audience saw the raw heritage of the tribes. The makeup looks took more than hours, as they wanted to replicate it. The make-up department also had to make sure that they planned ahead before they started so they didn’t do any mistakes, which proves all the hard work that has been put into this movie. “That’s certainly the groundwork of a Film like this is being true to the heritage of these actual tribes. Even though we’re creating fictional tribes, you can’t stray too far. Otherwise it becomes disrespectful.” (Long 2018). This proved how delicately they were handling their makeups and costumes.

In the movie the Language that was spoken is the head language of Wakanda. The language is known as IsiXhosa, is mostly spoken in South Africa. The audience who are from the same cultures as the Movie are appreciated as they are respected on the screen. They feel more confident in their language and skin. They do not feel outcasted or separated.

In the movie, the diversity plays an important role. As the Women and men play equal number of scenes. The both genders are equally important in this movie. As mentioned by Shanon Lee in her article the movie is praised highly for the feminist characters. It is also the first film to have an African American female to be nominated for best adapted screenplay as said by Nicol in her interview.

The social media played an incredibly important role in making the movie as successful it is. The What-Black-Panther-means-to-me- Hashtag that the fans used to their personal stories or connections to the film online. This made the movie be alive and active on social media for a long time as people were constantly sharing. It was tending on big platforms such as twitter or Facebook so the young generation was very up to date with the movie. It made it very popular so as soon as the movie was premiered, places like the community centers and the schools were given a chance to see the movie, including children.
