REPRESENTATION OF THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT:
Another question, which crops up regularly is something like this:
Explore how stylistic choices contribute to the representation of the urban experience in the films you have studied for this topic.
What is the importance of cinematography and/or editing in communicating issues of power, poverty and conflict in the films you have studied for this topic?
These essays require you to have a really good knowledge of the specific micro techniques that the directors use to communicate their themes (messages and values) about the nature of the city.
You are going to send a postcard home from the films version of the city we are in.
This should of course include multiple images from the films:
- iconic images
- locations & settings
- The atmosphere
- characters you have met
- The events you witnessed (from the film)
Here is a worksheet on narrative which explains it more precisely.
