Abstract

Movie has become seventh art and part of literary work. As literary work, movie is interesting to be analyzed. In this research, Elysium movie becomes the subject. The movie tells about the condition of the world in the 22nd century. In that condition, the earth is damaged and over polluted so that the wealthiest people create a place at the space called Elysium. However, Elysium causes the separation of class in society. The purpose of this research is to find out how the upper class and the lower class are represented in Elysium movie, how the upper class oppresses the lower class, and how the lower class struggles to achieve the justice and equality against the upper class. This research uses an objective approach by applying Marxist class struggle theory and supported by representation theory of Stuart Hall. This research focuses on the concept of class struggle by Karl Marx whereas the representation theory is used to help in interpreting the portrayal of lower class that is portrayed in the movie. After analyzing all data that have been found such as the class society identification, the oppression of lower class, and the struggle of lower class, the writer concludes that the struggle of lower class in the movie is the way of lower class to get their justice. While the portrayal of lower class in the movie is an attempt of reverse the representation of government through a negative meaning and giving a new meaning that people in government is not always good people.
