Essay Question: How do people personality change in places? and how its related to movement? you must answer this question by writing 4000 words.
To answer this question I need you look at Erving Goffman theories (theory of self) , Peggy Phelan essays or theories, Maya Deren theories or study and you can use Alfred Hitchcock theories as well, to answer this question. SO before answer the main question lets explore… main reflection and questions..
for example , how is weight of body related to gravity , what do they do …. blah blah
try to build an argument..
how film can be ethics? for example you can say there are other films with gravity but Im just saying that….
you can talk about feet in films as well..
what is the relationship between body and gravity/camera? how they are related… etc…
then come up with something else..
so you can build some other questions in order to answer the main question.
You must keep in mind to compare and contrast their form and content, in terms of some or all of the following : their historical and/or cultural context, issues of identity politics and representation of others, economic consideration, aesthetics and formal innovation, and finally narrative structure and the construction of meaning. Draw upon theoretical discourse to build your own argument. examine its structure and devices and its production context and conditions so as to isolate the mechanisms-social aesthetic, technological , financial and industrial . The resulting essay must evidence clear and concise expression, key reading , an understanding and application of concepts. good organisation and presentation of material careful referencing of ideas and quotation used (include page numbers) and coherent development of your own point of view.

You are working connection between them and you. Made your own meaning, cultural subject, different people make different meaning. what occasion do you make? Reasonable .
