In our meetings, we were involved to analyze the film “Borat”. Borat Sagdiyev is a sexist and anti-Semitic Kazakh television journalist. The film is organized like a documentary where Borat goes through the United States to resume the culture
and customs of the new world and then return to his country with precious and faithful testimony. Misogynius, anti-Semitic and racist, he maximize panic and destroys the secrets and hypocrisy of a culture full of prejudices and obscenity. On an ice creams
truck, with his clumsy colleague, Borat travels long and wide in the States looking for someone who shows him good manners, staying in society, but above all the way to reach his unique and only aim: meet the heroine of his favorite show Pamela Anderson. He
commits, apparently unconsciously, mistakes about the cultural differences existing with Americans. All of this is done with the aim of demonstrating how racism and stereotypes against minorities are widely spread in Western Countries as well.
