Answer one question, using reading, film, and lecture.
Need help with my Film question – I’m studying for my class.
1.Consider Forbidden Planet in comparison to either Chris Marker’s La Jetee or Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville. Explain the differences in period and in national, social and political context, and in the form and meaning of each film.
2.Consider the relationship between story and plot in Varda’s Cleo from 5 to 7. What is the main story in this film? How does they relate and unfold in the plot? What else do we come to know and learn with the main character as the plot unfolds? How does the social climate of Paris in 1962 get conveyed?
3.Analyze the plot and a scene or scenes in Oshima’s Death by Hanging in light of the director’s statement: “we made this film in the same spirit as street protesters and workers. … you’re sitting in an arthouse theater but we’re not making art. … please watch it with the same passion that you love, play, hate, and fight in the streets””
500 words at least and include 2 work cited.
