  4. 4. Identifying genre <ul><li>Sound: diagetic: chicken noises, the knife noises, the shouting of people in the city market </li></ul><ul><li>Sound: non diagetic: there was a second piece of music which was added after, used to build up the action as they chased the chicken. </li></ul><ul><li>Editing and special effects: there was no special effects, as the film was trying to convey the realism of the Brazilian slums. </li></ul>
