Hidden/Shown

Enigmas, ellipses, secrets, mysteries and revelations:  how - and why - are shown and hidden central concepts in cinema?  This question speaks to all the stages of filmmaking: the creation of the scenario - with its jumps through time; in the choice of setting – the difference between the designed space and the cinematographic space; when the film is shot and then edited; it also concerns the actors craft – to show or hide the characters’ emotions, to hold or show their interior life.

Resources

A film presenting the interplay of elements of the area in question: a breakdown of a sequence; film clips broken down in to categories, which can be seen online; and a portfolio of still images including photos and paintings. These elements can be indexed and brought together in to your personal space.

Examples

The participants of the workshops - pupils of primaries, middle and secondary schools - attempt several shorter, exercise films before making the final group film, which reflects the path of their learning journey throughout the course of the year exploring the topic in hand. These elements can be indexed and brought together in to your personal space.
