Question description

  • Watch the shot in Seven Samurai that starts 2:06:52. Discuss the mise-en-scène with the help of the frames in the file titled "Posting 2: Images". Use the terms and concepts introduced in class notes. 
  • Start by describing the first frame. Pay special attention to the positioning of objects and actors, lighting, and depth of field.
  • Discuss the symbolic importance of these elements in the shot. Note especially the relationship between the characters.
  • Continue to describe the differences introduced in the second and third frames. How do the formal elements of the mise-en-scène convey messages specific to the scene and to the film?
Talk about these frame in terms of mise-en-scene. Not the plot summary, talk about in terms of light, shapes, lines, vision... describe the first frame and then the affect of change of mise-en-scene as you work through these 3 frames. 200-300 words. I will post the link of film later.
