Abstract

The aim of this study is to uncover the causes and the strategies to resolve cross cultural conflict depicted in a film by Maghreb filmmaker Roschidy Zem's (2006) 'Mauvaise foi'. This film portrays the cross-cultural conflict between the extended family of a young couple with different cultural and religious backgrounds, Clara and Ismael. This study uses a qualitative method to describe the causes of cross-cultural conflict, namely ethnocentrism, stereotypes and misinterpretation as proposed by Pujiyanti and Zuliani [1], as well as the use of the four strategies of competition, accommodation, avoidance and collaboration proposed by Miall [2] to resolve conflicts between cultures. As result of the analysis, it is concluded that the cause of the cross-cultural conflicts in the film includes 3 elements that have been mentioned above. Following the conflicts, the disputing parties also try to make various strategies to resolve conflicts between individuals with different cultural and religious backgrounds and to create reconciliations. Competition strategy have failed to resolve the conflict, avoidance and accommodation strategy have succeeded in reducing the conflict, and collaboration strategy has succeeded in ending the cross-cultural conflicts peacefully.
