The advanced ways technology andthe media have both effectively mass communicated information and entertainment,has impacted a worldwide spectacle that reflects on daily life of society.
Amongstthe entertainment industry, cultural products come in the forms of television, radio,magazines, films and the internet, the media influences our societal attitudes hasimplicated personas of all kinds. Thisdissertation aims to analyse a selection of films that stage as fictionstarting to emerge in our contemporary world, and challenge our perception ofreality. The fine line between fact and fiction has always been complicated however,on some level the truth being humanity and the fiction being what we imagine;intangible thoughts all somewhat coexist in the shaping of social culture. Icompiled several studies that I thought best define the shift from theauthentic world we live in now to the illusion of the outside world thatcontemporary society seeks, I also looked at how their studies have manifestedthrough films we watch today such as science fiction where we have some insightof the outlook on our future, and the behaviours in society.
The discussion ofthese issues is contemplated thoroughly in this study.
