After two hours of mixed emotions, "Wonder" left me wondering about the role of cinema in raising social awareness and social development. And how has cinema grown to have a pre-eminent role in social development?Since 1920, movies, in the absence of radio and TV, proved that they are there not only for entertainment but also to raise awareness of what is happening around us.Since the birth of cinema, movies have tackled several social issues such as poverty, violence, corruption, discrimination, intolerance and other issues that emerge with our everyday, changing societies.If "Wonder" affected me and will affect thousands of people around the world, what about thousands of other films shedding the light on different societal problems and thousands of other people becoming affected?
