Transcript: Points of Interest For Discussion What is the point: Cinematography/ mise en scene Leitmotif History/ Colonial Ideology Identity What is the significance of Diouana asking for the mask back? Langford argues that we can use these systems to determine the identities of colonial and post-colonial subjects. Looking at the characters, do you agree? Are there any moments when characters move from one economic system to another? How can we interpret the last scene, when Monsieur returns the mask? Do you think cinematography of the movie being black and white emphasizes the microcosm? Give specific examples. How does the interior and the props (of being black and white) important? Do you agree with Langford that it emphasizes microcosm? Group One: Group Two: Group Three: Group Four: Summary: The article was written by Rachael Langford It focuses on the film La Noire de... that touches upon the issues of colonized and post-colonial identity Collaboration!!! Questions Questions Do you side with Mylkus and Armies or Langford pertaining to the voice over? How does Diouana form a sense of identity within the film? How is the act of suicide, the leitmotif of the mask, and themes of money, gift and production central to the film's confrontation with colonial and neo-colonial discourse on African identity In the beginning of the film, it showed a sequence of Diouana and monsieur driving from the port to the apartment. As they were driving, it illustrated them driving through the beach and people having fun. What is the significance of this scene in terms of identity and Diouanna’s perspective of France? In the end of the film, Diouana commits suicide. How did the French media respond? Did her death help link France and Dakar and if so what was that connection?

Transcript: Black and White By: Collin Edwards MYP English 2 The 1950's and 60's was a time of struggle for racial equality. There were many tragedies from revolutions from African-Americans. This period is known as the "Civil Rights Movement". The book, Black and White by Larry Dane Brimmer, helps to tell the story of Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Bull Connor role in the movement. This book is about the confrontation between Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Eugene "Bull" Connor. Reverend Shuttlesworth was a pastor and a civil rights leader. He helped pave the way for reformation in the South. Bull Connor was the Commissioner of Public Safety for the city of Birmingham, Alabama during the Civil Rights movement. He sought to keep things the way they were, but Reverend Shuttlesworth believed differently. Bull did everything to get rid of him and his ways. Aha! Moment Fred Shuttlesworth had assassination attempts all throughout his life. There was an attempt on Christmas Day, 1956, at 9:40 p.m. He and others that were with him survived, this was one of the many attempts to kill him.The biggest thing that I learned from this book was that there was no concerns over background education in jobs. Bull Connor became the Commissioner of Public Safety for the city of Birmingham, Alabama without a high school diploma. Accuracy and Authenticity This story's facts are accurate and since the book is up to date because many otherr sources have the same information. The author does include significant facts in the side captions such as, Autherine Lucy: Tests the Brown v. Board of Education Decision. The author presents a balanced view of Facts in the captions help to support the generalization of African Americans struggle for freedom. Content and Perspective The purpose of this story is to inform the audience about critical events in the civil rights movement. The intended audience is for all people especially young people to inform them of key events in history. Style The message, text, and art are clear for the audience in this story. The level of difficulty in the story is average, but the author puts the reader in the book as one of the characters. Even though one of the main characters was a preacher, the story avoided being too didactic. "Black & White." By Larry Dane Brimner. N.p., n.d. Web. 28 Oct. 2012. <>. Organization Gist Opinion I thought that the book, Black and White, was an interesting book. I thought the book provided me with more information on the civil rights movement. This book helped me to learn how Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Bull Connor contributed in the struggle for freedom. The structure of the book was one part tells the story of one of the main characters (Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth) and another character (Bull Connor) and their confrontation. The book does clarify the message throughout the text following additional information from the extension of text. There were very good pictures to explain the stories and the overall situation. The captions in the book helps the reader to clearly know what the reader is trying to describe. There was a normal format in all the selections. Illustrations and Format Introduction

Transcript: The spontaneous brushstrokes and lines are common in most abstract expressionist paintings There are many different layers of colors The artists use different brushstrokes to portray emotion, in this case, the artists seems angry and rebellious Different people interpret the painting in different ways, some people see different things than others This painting would be considered an action painting rather than a color field painting This movement was unique because every artists had their own version or style of painting abstract expressionism What type of painting is this?? What colors are used?? What do you see that others may not?? Any special shapes made in this painting?? Whats the mood shown in this painting?? The Artist is Franz Kline You can tell by the style of his painting. Parents divorced when he was 3 years old. An action painter A lot of his work reflected his anger through out his life. Went to the Rotterdam Academy of Fine Arts and Techniques. Heavily influenced by Picasso and his cubist work. Jackson Pollock Reactions: 1. Color Field Painting 2. Action Painting (Gestural painting He was born Wyoming and moved to New York in 1930. He started painting around 1928-30, when he was 16 and studied under Thomas Hart Benton. (However, the American rural landscapes had little to no impact on his work. Although, the use of colors and use of paint were more lasting influences.) Later, he used ideas from Pablo Picasso to start an new painting style focused from Cubism. Artists focus more on the process and technique of painting Not as much about the finished product generally this type of painting is considered "messy". Hard to depict what the message (content) is behind the painting Mark Rothko was born in Dvinsk, Russia on September 25, 1903 Rothko painted more with water colors and created some great works using a palette of grays and earth tones Some critics say that a few of his paintings are a "masterpiece and a landscape of the mind." The left picture is an example of Abstract Expressionism. Lets Go More In Depth Born in Pennsylvania Went to Boston University and Girard College. He taught many art classes focused on abstract art. His work becomes easy to recognize due to his use of thick, bold, black lines. Night Creatures Lee Krasner 1965 Willem De Kooning Mark Rothko (Gestural Painting) Untitled No. 3 Jackson Pollock Re-cap: 1912- 1956 Artists Involved In This Movement Can you guess the artist of this painting?? Two Types of Abstract Expressionism 1903-1970 Abstract expressionism was an art movement that matured in the 1930's and continued to developed after WW2 from the 1940's to the 1950's. It originated in New York City due to the political instability in Europe (Paris). The idea of abstract art was heavily influenced by cubism, and surrealism. Artist moved to America and translated their art into a new style fitted to the post-war mood of anxiety and trauma which set the stage for modern art, and America's post-war dominance of the international art world. Surrealism and Cubism (influences) rebelling against the strict rule of Europe (post-WW2) and showing social chaos of depression, trauma, and the anxiety people were feeling after the war. Identify Jackson Pollock 1959 Abstract Expressionism Characteristics of Abstract Ecxpressionism Which picture is an example of Abstract Expressionism? Untitled Jackson Pollock 1948-49 uses blocks of color to symbolize and express emotion color gave the painting the feeling they wanted to portray it was considered more "organized" than action painting Abstraction (Subject Matter) Influences, Ideas, Brainstorming and Sketching! Abstract Expressionism Watch Walt Disney's Fantasia. As you are watching the movie you will pay close attention to the music and art. Then, compile and list of words or thumbnail sketches that correlate what you are hearing and seeing. (So you will react to each musical segment focusing on the elements/principles of art "line, color, shape, pattern, value, rhythm, texture, etc.) Color Field Painting Untitled 1957 Many people back then and still in the present day don't understand the concept of abstract expressionism Red, Orange, Tan and Purple 1949 1910- 1962 Franz Kline Window Panes with Bicycle Pangin 2005 At first this movement was not liked because it was against the rules of tradition.
