A film, also called a movie or motion picture, is a series of still images which, when shown on a screen, creates the illusion of moving images. Films are cultural artifacts created by specific cultures. They reflect those cultures, and, in turn, affect them. Film is considered to be an important art form, a source of popular entertainment, and a powerful medium for educating—or indoctrinating—citizens.
