hybridity of culture example
The movie Slumdog Millionaire is a great example of a hybridity of culture. Slumdog Millionaire took the idea of an American game show as the plot of its movie and integrated an amazing plot line that discussed the culture of India. The movie, also produced by Bollywood, an adapted version of the American Hollywood, another great example of a hybridity of culture spread quickly throughout the world and won several international awards as well as the academy award for best picture, the first time a foreign film won the academy award over a Hollywood produced film. I personally loved this film and found it not only to be extremely entertaining, but also very eye opening to some of the culture of India.
