How is ethnicity shown through camera movement? Spooks Scene

The ethnicity of the characters is shown through many camera movements. the first shot, a crane shot of the scene below, disguises the ethnicity of the characters so we do not know there race. After this establishing shot of the scene we get close ups of the characters, mainly when they are speaking. In theses shots the camera is constantly moving to show the fast pace of the plot and that there is tension between these characters. The ethnicity of the terrorists is always shown by an extreme close up or by a slightly tilted camera close up of them. While the close ups between the two agents are never tilted . The only difference between the two agents and the terrorists is that the agents are sat down so we get a view of them different to that of the terrorists.
