50. Politics of Screen Practice
Compare and contrast the representations of revolutionary struggle in Gillo Pontecorvo’s The Battle of Algiers and Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin. You should situate both films in their historical contexts, while paying close attention to similarities and differences in style, narrative and meaning.
Demonstrate an awareness of the consequences of artistic decisions
Identify the relationship between a film’s meanings and elements of the mise- en-scene, soundtrack, editing or narrative structure
Advance a critical argument through verbal presentation (written and oral) which supports your interpretations with evidence
Establish differences in viewing environments for forms of moving image. Identify the elements of a dramatic structure and recognise the importance of the script as a key document for production.
Express creative ideas in a proposal and screenplay formats, using the correct layout.
