Movie Case Study:

Seven Interconnected Elements in Systems

The Divergent Series

THE FIVE FACTIONS OF DIVERGENT:

The Faction Mottoes (As Presented in the Movie)

Abnegation — I will be my undoing if I become my obsession.

Amity — Trust. Self-Sufficiency. Forgiveness. Kindness.

Candor — Dishonesty makes evil possible. Truth makes us inextricable.

Dauntless — We believe in freedom from fear, in ordinary acts of bravery, in defending those who cannot defend themselves.

Erudite — Knowledge is the only logical solution to conflict. Intelligence must be used for the benefit of society.

The World of Divergent: The Path to Allegiant, by Veronica Roth (2013, HarperCollins). Kindle edition. Nook edition. This free e-book contains the faction manifestos.

MOVIES:

Divergent (2014; rated PG-13 for “intense violence and action, thematic elements and some sensuality”). IMDB main page and content advisory.

Insurgent (2015; rated PG-13 for “intense violence and action throughout, some sensuality, thematic elements and brief language”). IMDB main page and content advisory.

Allegiant (2016; rated PG-13 for “intense violence and action, thematic elements, and some partial nudity”). IMDB main page and content advisory.

Ascendant (2017). IMDB main page. Unfortunately, due to lower-than-anticipated box office receipts for the first three movies, the fourth film in the series was changed to become a TV movie followed by a spin-off series. At this point (February 2017), the status of Ascendant is still unclear.
