  1. 1. Representation GCSE FILM
  2. 2. Representation• is all about how different people, places and events are shown with the film. Think about it like the film is re-presenting (showing something a second time) something/someone/somewhere to its audience. It exists in the real world but the act of putting it on screen changes how people think about it Can you think of any examples of where movies have changed how you think about something or simply given you an opinion when you had none before?
