Abstract

The presence of Muslims, as immigrants and minority, in America is one of the most interesting topics to discuss. The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2012) is one of films that tell a story about a Muslim immigrant in America. This film is important to analyse because the film depicts how Muslim is treated in America. The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2012) might be a representation of how America discriminates its immigrants and minority. Changez Khan is a main character of The Reluctant Fundamentalist film that has a paradoxical characterization. This research aims at paradoxical characterization in facing a discrimination of America. The researcher uses binary opposition theory by Claude Levi-Strauss to analyse the paradoxical characterization of Changez Khan. Furthermore, film theory was also employed to analyse the pictures of the film. In the analysis, the researcher found some binary oppositions. They are “Ambition” – “Neglect”, “Acceptance” – “Rejection”, “Provoked” – “Ignored” and “Conceal” – “Reveal”. The binary opposition makes a pattern that is appropriate with the plot. Then, the researcher concludes that the paradoxical characterization of Changez Khan is represented as “American” – “Un-American”. The American side refers to the fact Changez Khan is an ambitious man in chasing his dream. While, the “Un-American” refers to when he feels discriminated by America, so “Un-American” side might be a representation of immigrant in America.
