Once you have viewed and listened to these three videos, choose a short clip (about a minute or so in length) from the third video (Poverty Films 1930s-1960s). Write a short response paper (about one double-spaced page, or 250 words) in which you do the following:
1) describe the poverty you see depicted on screen in your chose clip;
2) discuss the ways in which poverty is depicted and what kind of argument is being made by the filmmaker;
3) discuss key film techniques you notice (mise-en-scene, lighting, framing/camera angles, etc.).
4) comment on what you believe to be the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the representation of poverty in your chosen clip. Consider how you think audiences, then and now, would react to the clip. You can use first person as you write your response.
Be sure to refer to where the clip appears in the film (minutes and seconds). For example, “The scene found in 22:12-23:18…”
