The children featured in the film are seen to be playing ‘Cowboys and Indians,' which, although not politically correct to a modern audience, will resonate with people who grew up between the 1960s to the 1980s. From a censorship perspective, it should be noted that the children are playing with toy guns and also pretending to be shot/killed, so may not be appropriate for young children to view. From a sociological perspective, it evidences the cross-cultural influence of (for example) American movies and narratives, which were prevalent at this time. [some footage overexposed]
