It is also interesting to note that over time, the focus of the insurgency theme changes. In the examples in our essay, all the insurgents are clearly meant to be heroic and sympathetic, and the political leanings of the films obvious. Contrast this with the winner of the 2009 Academy Award for Best Picture, Avatar, in which it is humankind as a whole who are the antagonist, but in general, the indigenous population remaining the heroic and emulated.
