What  is  the  importance  of  cinematography  and/or  edi4ng  in  communica4ng  issues  of  power,  poverty  and  conflict  in  the  films  you  have  studied  for  this  topic?P Poverty is shown through the social divide in the film.E Tsotsi stands in the rain and has a flashback. We cut to a wide shot of children in concrete tunnels trying to shelter and keep warm.E This allows us to sympathize with the proratingits and understand why he is forced to turn to crime.

  5. 5. How  far  do  the  films  you  have  studied  for  this  topic  challenge  the  audience,  genera4ng    debate  about  the  worlds  they  represent?P The chaotic existence of the characters in City of God can be argued to glamourise the dog eat dog world of the favelas. During the bank robbery scene, Knockout Ned succumbs to this violent lifestyle that is mapped out for every male citizenE of this urban society. The kinetic handheld camera and voccocentric frantic diegetic sound of the robbers gives us a sense of the harsh reality coupled with the excitement of the action.E This stereotype of kids with guns used throughout the film leaves me with no doubt that this is an inevitable depressing cycle of violence with no escape. Although, Meirelles filming style is thrilling to watch and produces for the spectator a visceral response.
