•It is most often done with the idea of implementing or promoting change.
•What social responsibilities do artists (film makers, authors, etc.) have to the world?
•How do artists influence culture?
•How can you make your voice heard?
•How can you help others see or understand your point of view?

“To me, the best zombie movies aren’t the splatter fests of gore and violence with goofy characters and tongue in cheek antics. Good zombie movies show us how messed up we are, they make us question our station in society… and our society’s station in the world. They show us gore and violence and all that cool stuff too… but there’s always an undercurrent of social commentary and thoughtfulness.”
― Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead
