The Giver is a 2014 film adapted from a novel of the same name. The giver contains a supposition, which presupposes a world without war, racism, and discrimination. In this study, researchers used the theory of Multiculturalism from Clifford Geertz. The statement of this research is to know the condition if we live in such a perfect world without war, discrimination, racism. That exists in The Giver film and even in the current pandemic era. The data analysis in this study used a qualitative descriptive method. The results show that the true form of human perfection is our imperfection as humans themselves. When the elders in society in this film choose to create equations, throwing away human emotions and memories, they make a mistake. This conflict is a reflection of the absence of life with multiculturalism. Unlike film, we humans need emotions, and if we have emotions, we have to live in multiculturalism to avoid discrimination, racism, etc. Even during this pandemic, mutual respect for each other’s differences makes life beautiful and colourful.
