The third world people still stay in the marginal status, an “othering” process, impersonating the image what the first world people suppose they should be like unconsciously. Being aware of both of the two antagonistic cultures, that of the colonizer and that of the indigenous community, often produces an unstable sense of self, called “unhomeliness”. In this essay, I intend to point out that in order to solve these problems, the third world people should learn to challenge what the white impose on them, usually based not on reality, but on imagination. Otherwise, not merely Slumdog Millionaire, but any forthcoming movies will be big losers.
