Unit 1: Visual Analysis Essay Prompt The purpose of this essay is to create a thesis in which you identify a topic or theme in one of the assigned films for our unit on “dystopianism” and use scene analysis, dialogue analysis, character analysis, and research to support your thesis statement. Again, the focus should be one topic in one of the films. One of your aims should be to discuss in the paper the social commentary the film provides. Secondly, you should incorporate key terms from class lectures throughout the paper to facilitate your argument. The conclusion should present a “relevancy statement” as it relates to the topic in a present day and futural context.
Some questions to consider:
What social commentary does the film provide? Related, what argument for/against an issue is it making? How, exactly, does it do this?
How does the film begin? What is its climax? How does it end?
Do any of the characters experience a change or transformation within the framework of your chosen topic?
What motifs are used in the film?
How is meaning established in the film? What rhetorical appeals are used to facilitate such meaning?
What is the historical context?
What are the character representations? What are their motivations? What is at stake?
1) Your analysis must connect your chosen film to a broader cultural issue/social commentary
2) This is an analysis essay using terms and tools from our reading on visual literacy—not a review
