ption One: Essay You will write an essay of 2250 – 3000 words in which you interpret a feature-length, live-action narrative film (i.e., not documentary, radically experimental, or animated film) of your choice. You will develop an original, sophisticated argument about it that draws substantially on textual analysis. In many ways, you can think of this as a longer and more in-depth version of the Sound and Mise-en-scène exercise, except that your argument should be more complex and you will need to draw on multiple aspects of the audiovisuals (i.e., not just sound and mise-en-scène). You should, however, try to achieve a similar level of technical precision and balance between technical description and interpretation. The film you analyze may be from any period, country, genre or narrative tradition. You cannot, however, write on a film that we have watched in full in class or one that you wrote on for your Sound and Mise-en-Scène Essay. Your interpretation of the film must centre around a specific argument, rather than simply enumerating different aspects of the film. Your argument must not be purely qualitative (i.e., “this is a good film because …”); it must analyze the film in relation to representation, identification, ideology, realism/anti-realism, or some other topic in aesthetics or the politics of representation. There is a file in the Option One: Essay folder on the Blackboard System called “Developing an Argument” that might help you determine how you can push your argument to be more sophisticated and original. Here are some sample thesis statements: The Film offers an egalitarian representation of gender because the camera and editing show the points of view of male and female characters equally, and also presents male and female characters through the same techniques of angle, distance, height, lighting, and costume. The anti-realism of The Film demands that the audience reflect carefully on the political situation it represents, and question the validity not only of the diegetic characters’ motivations, but also of the way the film presents these motivations. The Film appears to be focalized equally through two characters, because equal screen time is given to each; however, upon closer analysis, it is clear that the cinematography distances the viewer from one character more than the other. This subtly disempowers the views of one character and covertly encourages the audience to identify with the other. Throughout your paper, your argument should draw on the tools and issues discussed in this course: how design and composition, cinematography, sound, editing and narrative structure produce the meanings of the film. However, you do not need to address every aspect of film language; you should address only those aspects that best support your argument about the film. In order to ensure that you address the technical aspects of the film in detail, you are advised to analyze between one and three scenes/sequences (the ones that best reflect your thesis) in depth. This is not required,
Assignment Content Objective: Practice making connections between texts or ideas; engage in critical thinking; learn to organize similar items into separate categories based on their differences; recognize how classification and division affect a person’s world-view. Description: This past summer, in the midst of a global pandemic, we witnessed wave after wave of civil unrest as people from all over the world took to the streets in protest of racial injustice. This unrest has reignited debates surrounding the distinction between violent and nonviolent protest. According to the Ruckus Society, direct action is the “strategic use of immediately effective acts to achieve a social or political end and challenge an unjust power dynamic,” and that there are FOUR different types of nonviolent direct action: 1. Protest 2. Non-cooperation 3. Intervention 4. Creative Solutions. Instructions: Write a SIX paragraph essay that classifies the four different categories of nonviolent direct action. Your essay should devote a single body paragraph for each type of nonviolent direct action (i.e. one paragraph for “protest,” another for “intervention,” and so forth). Each body paragraph should give ONE real-life, recent example of the nonviolent direct action. Criteria: Thesis that states that states the topic, classification of the topic, and its divisions (categories); Series of logical reasons or points to justify your thesis; Overt connections between reasons and examples; Clear, logical organization including effective use of paragraphing; Effective use of paraphrasing and quotation and integration of at least FOUR outside sources obtained from the Monroe College Library Databases; Sentences relatively free from errors. Correctly formatted Title Page, Abstract, and References Page Format: APA (see https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/general_format.html). Length: approx. 800-1000 words. Steps: Introduction: Describe the topic of the essay by using broad opening statements. As the introduction progresses, get more specific about the topic. At the end of the introduction, a thesis should be included. The thesis should include the topic, the classification of the topic, and the categories into which the topic will be divided into (i.e. “The four different types of nonviolent direct action are protest, non-cooperation, intervention, and creative solution”). Body Paragraphs: Each category listed in the thesis statement should have its own body paragraph. In other words, each body paragraph should focus on only one category. Classification essays can be as long or short as necessary, depending on the number of categories listed in the thesis. Support each category with several examples that provide evidence and further prove the validity of the points. Typically, each category should be supported with the same number of examples. In this section of the paper, the goal is to explain each category. For example, what makes a horror film, or what makes a comedy film. It is important to explain how each example fits into its category. This helps the reader differentiate between the different points. Conclusion: Conclude classification essays by re-emphasizing the main points. It is important to restate and rewrite the thesis of the essay at the beginning of the conclusion. Be careful to avoid rewriting it word for word. This will refresh the readers memory and allow him or her to form complete ideas about the information given. Unlike an introduction, it is best for the conclusion paragraph to start specific and lead into broader topics. Do not mention any information that was not previously discussed in the essay. Additional Instructions: Use the APA Abstract
