Abstract

Every country has its own culture that might be different from others. It is not wondering if the visitors who with no or a little cultural awareness of other cultures they would experience cultural conflict. This study would explore more about cultural conflicts in entering new culture and environment. The object of this study was “Anna and the King” movie. The writer tries to describe the cultural conflicts experienced by Anna Leonowens in “Anna and the King” movie using descriptive qualitative design. The writer found that “Anna and the King” movie reflected how Anna Leonowens, a school teacher with a little cultural awareness came into new culture and environment. As the result, she experienced cultural conflicts there, such as: Anna’s unacceptability on private questions given by the Prime Minister. The delay of private house promised by the king, Anna’s refusal to obey the protocol of the palace, Anna’s trial in erasing the slavery in Siam, and her refusal on a ring given by the King. All of those cultural conflicts were experienced by Anna without giving up her nationalities and culture. Anna’s solutions in solving her cultural conflicts were by complaining what was unacceptable culturally, and then, accepting the King’s decision of her complaints. Another solution was by fulfilling her duty as a good school teacher of the palace. The writer suggests that people must learn well about the cultural awareness and be more open minded to the different cultures from theirs, to avoid the causes of the cultural conflicts or even the cultural conflicts itself when they visit or living in a new cultural life and environment.
