mutlicultural movies?

hey everyone,
just thought i would ask for suggestions for some good multicultural movies out there?

i recently watched "whale rider" and "real women have curves"...both have very positive messages and images for young women and girls. which i think is always a good thing.

any suggestions/reccommendations?

ONE love,

U know what movie i like?? "Guess who's coming to dinner"

I'm not really too sure about the message but i think it's a great movie and it's got lots of comic relief. And it shows how hard the interracial thing can be, but also how it can be overcome!!

Here are some multicultural movies for my sorors, or anyone else looking to open their minds!!

A group of Mende tribe members mutiny aboard an 1839 slave ship in this portrayal of the brutal slave trade business.

Flower Drum Song
A musical about the clash between culture and race as a young Chinese woman arrives in America for an arranged marriage only to fall in love with the son of her host who stands between Chinese and American culture.

Born in East L. A.
An American of Mexican descent is deported in an immigration raid and must find his way back home with no I.D. or knowledge of Spanish.

Mississippi Masala
The daughter of Indian parents expelled from Uganda grows up and falls in love with a Black carpet cleaner and finds herself caught between cultures.

West Side Story
Rival street gangs battle for territory in this modern-day adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.

The Wedding Banquet
A gay Taiwanese-American man in a happy long-term relationship marries a Chinese girl in need of a green card in order to satisfy his parents. The joyous parents arrive for the wedding and a huge cross-cultural banquet is arranged to celebrate.

Based on the letters of Col. Robert G. Shaw, an officer in the Federal Army during the American Civil War who volunteered to lead the first company of black soldiers and deal with the prejudices of both the enemy and of his own fellow officers.

Smoke Signals
Nearly every nuance of Native American reservation life is explored in this movie about two young men who hit the road in search of their roots.
