Abstract [en]

Movies can be a source to enjoyment, cultural enrichment and relaxation. But movies are also filled with messages and subtext, that effects the one who watches the movie. One of the effects are the reproducing of stereotypes and racism. This essay concentrates on the five best grossing science fiction movies in Sweden between the years 2009 – 2014. I found out that the movies Avatar, Transformers 3, Avengers, Prometheus and Guardians of the galaxy all helps to reproduce white norms and that it effects the participating aspect of democracy. It also becomes clear that Swedish schools is not prepared enough to educate their young in source criticism.
