Transcript of The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games: By: Mattie Adams The Elements of Drama In The Hunger Games Interacting: The setting of the Hunger Games is a computer generated forest and a rural area with many poor people. It takes place in a future time zone. This effects both the plot and tone of the story: The setting effects the plot in many ways. One way it effects the plot is by creating suspense. The computer generated forest adds suspense because you don't know what the game makers will through at the players. This also makes you wander if Katniss will be able to survive the harsh forest with little water. The rural area creates suspense because the people who live there are starving and that creates suspense when Katniss leaves for the games and you wander if Prim and her mom will starve or live. I know this because the passage says,"Take care of them, Gale! Whatever you do, don't let them starve!" In this quote they are talking about Prim and her mom and Katniss is worrying that they will starve when she goes to the games. Another way the setting effects the plot is that it creates conflict. The rural area creates conflict because many people are starving in that area because of the lack of resources and the government is not helping them and death is a conflict. The computer generated forest gives conflict to the plot by all the death that is happening there. The computer generated forest adds to the tone by giving it a negative feel because of all of the people who were dieing. I know this because in the movie it says, "You really wanna know how to stay alive? You get people to like you. Oh! Not what you were expecting. Well, when you're in the middle of the games, and you're starving or freezing, some water, a knife or even some matches can mean the difference between life and death. And those things only come from sponsors, and to get sponsors, you have to make people like you. And right now, sweetheart, you're not off to a real good start." This quote is talking about what it will be like in the games. The Dramatic elements of the Hunger Games effects the tone and the plot in many ways: The rural area gives a negative tone because there are so many poor people there and so many people who die because of starvation. One dramatic element that effects the plot is the props in the Hunger Games. The mocking jay pin, Katniss' bows and arrows, and Peeta's bread all are props that effects the plot. For example, Peeta's bread was part of a very important part of the movie were he falls in love with Katniss this part brings suspense to the story because you wander if Katniss will choose Peeta or Gale. Katniss's bows and arrows add conflict because in the she is more dangerous with her arrows so she and the other tributes in the games don't want her to be dangerous because she could win. These props effect the tone in many ways. One way Peeta's bread effects the tone is by adding a positive tone by adding Peeta's love towards Katinss which puts a happier spin compared to the negative things that happen in the movie. Katniss' bows and arrows add to the tone by adding a negative feel to the story because the characters that are fighting against Katniss in the games see Katniss as more dangerous with her bows and arrows. Words that are used to Create Tone and Meaning: How are the Contrasting Point of Views developed?: The point of views in this movie are: For example, Katinss's point of view is contrasting with Peeta's point of view because Katniss wants to just win the games and go on with her life but Peeta wants to win the games but doesn't want to be just another piece in their games. I know this because,"Peeta Mellark: "I just keep wishing I could think of a way to show them that they don't own me. If I'm gonna die, I wanna still be me. Does it make any sense?" Katniss Everdeen: "Yeah. I just can't afford to think like that." Peeta wants to show that he isn't just another piece in their games to the capital but Katniss can't afford to think like that because she needs to win for her sister. These point of views can contrast: Reality is Changed in this Movie by: Another example is that Peeta's and Gale's point of views contrast because they both like Katniss, but Katniss can only like one of them so this could cause conflict between them. These Points of Views can effect the plot: The points of views of the characters effect the plot by creating contrast. When the point of views contrast this causes conflict. I know this because when Peeta's and Gale's point of views contrast they cause conflict because Gale gets angry when Katniss choose Peeta. The points of views of the characters effect the plot by creating suspense. I know this because when Peeta's and Gale's points of views contrast they cause the suspense because the audience wonders which person Katniss will like. Katniss needs to win the Hunger Games for her little sister and for her self. Peeta likes Katniss and doesn't want to be just another piece in their games. Haymich needs to help Katniss win the games. Gale doesn't like the capital and he likes Katniss. The Part where the Protagonist, (Katniss) Volunteers for her Sister Impacts the whole story: This part impacts the plot by creating conflict: When the protagonist, Katniss volunteers for her sister to be in the Hunger Games this adds conflict because she has to go into the games and she will either die or win; this causes conflict. I know this because in the movie it says, Gale Hawthorne: "They just want a good show, that's all they want." Katniss Everdeen: "There's 24 of us Gale, only one comes out." These quotes shows the conflict of the games. This part also impacts the plot by adding suspense: When Katniss volunteers for her sister to be in the games this adds suspense because the audience wonders if she will win the games or die. I know this because in the movie it says, Haymitch Abernathy: Embrace, the probability of your imminent death; and know deep down in your heart, that there is nothing I can do to save you." Katniss Everdeen: "Then what are you here for?" This shows that the protagonist might die; this causes suspense. Katniss and Gale or Peeta and Katniss This part Impacts the Audience: When Katniss volunteers for her sister to be in the Hunger Games his impacts the audience in many ways. One way it does this is by making the audience feel suspense because the protagonist might die! This part also impacts the audience by making them feel sorry for the characters like the protagonist, (Katniss) and her sister. I know this because when Prim (Katniss' little sister) has to go to the Hunger Games the audience feels bad for her because the Hunger Games has such a negative connotation because she might die. Katniss volunteers for her sister and the audience feels bad for her too for the same reason. ABA - Children's Rights Litigation Committee

United Nations Children's Rights
To highlight the existence of the most egregious violations of international human rights law and encourage Governments to investigate particular cases, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights has appointed a Special Rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography. Children Rights Law - US: -Source: HG.org My Article: This Article is related to the movie The Hunger Games: This article relates to the Hunger Games because it is talking about the unfair things that sometimes happen to kids in the real world and how the US has tried stopped them and in the Hunger Games the games is an example of unfair things that happens to them in the pretend world that Katniss lives in. I know this because in the movie it says, President Snow: "And so it was decreed that each year the twelve districts of Panem shall offer up in tribute one young man and woman between the ages of twelve and eighteen to be trained in the art of survival and be prepared to fight to the death." And in the article it says, "The Children's Rights Division monitors human rights abuses against children around the world and works to end them. We investigate all kinds of human rights abuses against children: the use of children as soldiers; the worst forms of child labor; torture of children by police..." These quotes prove that both the article and the movie have the basic relation that they both talk about the unfair things that kids could and sometimes suffer. The reality in the Hunger Games is changed in many ways: One way the reality is changed is the concept of the Hunger Games. The concept of the Hunger Games is fictional because there has never been something in the world like it were the government makes the kids fight to the death. Another way that reality is changed is by the animated elements like the big monstrous dogs that are in the movie, and the super speed train, the computer generated forest, and the fire coming out of trees etc. These things make the the movie have more fiction and cause the reality to be changed. The creator of the Hunger Games changes these parts of reality for many reasons: The Creator changed the parts of reality in the Hunger Games so that it would appeal to the audience better. For example, if you have just a normal train or a regular forest with not fire coming out of trees then the story would lose it's fiction and part of its meaning It would also cause the movie to appeal less to the audiences. The creator changed the parts of reality in this movie so that it would add suspense. For example if the creator just left the animated elements regular and didn't add them to the story it would lose some of the suspense they bring. The computer generated forest adds the suspense because the audience doesn't know what the forest will through at the protagonist and the other characters. Reality is also used in the Hunger Games: Some reality that is used in the Hunger Games is hardship, hunger, poverty, cruel governments, and child abuse. The reality of the poverty is found in the protagonist's home town where many people starve there because of lack of food, water, and shelter. The reality of the cruel government is represented by the government making the kids fight to the death in order to show there power. I know this because, President Snow: "And so it was decreed that each year the twelve districts of Panem shall offer up in tribute one young man and woman between the ages of twelve and eighteen to be trained in the art of survival and be prepared to fight to the death." Some words that create tone and meaning in the Hunger Games are: Tribute
The Hunger Games
Death
Fight
Hunger
Starve The words' connotations: These words all have a negative connotation in the Hunger Games because they are part of negative situations that happen in the Hunger Games. These words contribute to the tone and meaning of the story: The negative connotations of this words create a negative tone for the story. It also creates a negative meaning. Figurative language in the Hunger Games: "Katniss Everdeen the girl on fire." is an example of figurative language in the Hunger Games. it is used to describe Katniss' fake "flames" that she wore. Another example of figurative language in the Hunger Games is "I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun." This is describing the way Katniss looked on the night of the interview before the games. "Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire."
