Transcript: NATO Stalin wanted to retain political and economic control over Eastern Europe. The Soviets managed to install Communist governments throughout Eastern Europe. Stalin outlawed political parties or newspapers that opposed the communism. The Soviets jailed or killed some political opponents. The Soviets rigged elections to ensure the success of Communists. The Soviet Union relocated Germans living in Poland and other countries of Eastern Europe. Iron Curtain The military, political, and ideological barrier established between the Soviet bloc and western Europe from 1945 to 1990. Iron Curtain By Anne Applebaum Time Period of the book Ethnic cleansing was a form of getting rid of people from Germany and Poland after WWII. The Soviet army was moving these people from their homes and neighborhoods and putting them into work camps. This was because the spread of communism required getting rid of anybody who was opposed to this idea. As you will see any form of opposition you were removed from society. Brendan Conry Life under communist rule is nothing that anybody wants to go through. The government, is the name of the people, owned the factories, farms, mines, and other means of production. People could no longer own their own profit-making businesses and farms. Government economic planners decided what and how much should be produced each year, what the prices should be, and what wages should be paid to the workers. Everyday people would work hours and hours for barely any money which would give them nothing more than food scraps if they were lucky. If you even hinted at conspiring against the government you will be sent off to a camp or killed. United States Belgium Canada Denmark France United Kingdom Italy Luxembourg Norway Portugal Netherlands Iceland Berlin Blockade The Main Idea At the end of World War II, tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States deepened, leading to an era known as the Cold War. The United States and their allies controlled most of western Europe after the war. While U.S.S.R controlled all of Eastern Europe. Joesph Stalin "From behind the Iron Curtain, there are signs that tyranny is in trouble and reminders that its structure is as brittle as its surface is hard". - Dwight D. Eisenhower International military alliance created to defend western Europe against a possible Soviet invasion. A 1948 collective-defense alliance between Britain, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg was recognized as inadequate to deter Soviet aggression, and in 1949 the U.S. and Canada agreed to join their European allies in an enlarged alliance U.S.S.R Poland Bulgaria Hungary Romania Albania Everything from elections to the radio was rigged with propaganda. Stalin wanted to make sure that everybody under his power knew only about communism and socialism. He was able to persuade everybody through the newspapers and radio stations to believe that the United States views were that of an attack on the U.S.S.R. This is how he created this so called iron curtain over his kingdom. Propaganda By Life under the Iron Curtain Major Players/ Characters Eastern Bloc This was a very informative and extremely helpful to realizing how much effect communism had over all of Europe. I would strongly recommend this book to anybody who wants to read about real events that occurred during the cold war. What happened to the people under the socialist rule should never happen to anybody else. International crises that arose from an attempt by the Soviet Union to force the Allied powers (U.S., Britain, and France) to abandon their postwar authority in West Berlin. The Soviets, regarding the economic stature of the three Allied occupation zones in Germany in 1948 as a threat to the East German economy, blockaded all transportation routes between Berlin and West Germany. The U.S. and Britain responded by supplying the city with food and other supplies by military air transport and airlifting out West Berlin exports. An Allied embargo on exports from the Eastern bloc forced the Soviets to lift the blockade after 11 months. This was an event that almost resulted in war. Personal Recommendation 1945 to 1956

Transcript: RED CURTAIN CINEMA Chanel, Lily, Amelia About ABOUT These movies heighten the movie experience to the point where audiences become conscious of the fabrication and artistry involved by incorporating music, dance, vibrant scenery, and colourful costumes to accompany the dramatic tale. Red Curtain movies use theatrical rather than naturalistic cinematic techniques to keep the audience interested at all times. Due to Luhrmann's extensive background in the arts and media, he made a conscious choice to take this storytelling method. The theatrical approach used in Luhrmann's movies, which blends singing and dancing with quick cuts and editing, gives the audience the feeling that they are actively participating in the live action rather than passively watching it in the theatre. CHARACTERISTICS & TECHNIQUES CHARACTERISTICS Characteristics of a red curtain cinema include; - Exaggerated showcases with the primary aim for films to entertain and simulate the audience and not conveying everyday reality. - Utilise the inherently theatrical nature of storytelling and the arts - Focus on different artistic expressions such as dance, poetry, and music and how they can be used to tell powerful and moving stories. There are three rules to luhrmann's trilogy. These include: - The stories being original and creative - the stories being based on familiar narratives - The final rule is that the audience must know that the film they are viewing is not real. Each of the three films, despite being serpate stories, all share the same plot while havinf 3 alternate endings. The alternate endings is what connects the three movies, and futher creating the red curtain trilogy. The trilogy aims to focus on different expressions of dance, poetry and music, and how each individual expression can be used to tell powerful and moving stories, all which are conveyed through movies. In each of these movies, there are different genres, each which are a motif to enhance the storyline as well as engaging the audience through the movie. The exaggeration of the movies is the main focus of them all in order to entertain the audience, enchant and stimulate their audience. EXAMPLES EXAMPLES Examples of the Red curtain cinema is the triology of: - Strictly Ballroom is an Australian romantic comedy film - Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet is a romantic crime film. - Moulin Rouge is a musical romantic drama film.

Transcript: Baz Luhrmann’s use of cinematography and film techniques Thesis statement Topic sentence Baz Luhrman’s creative use of cinematography and that variety of different film techniques that he uses, has shaped my idea of the film to uncover how living a life in fear has had an impact on many characters in the film and that each have had different experiences when overcoming this fear and how this impacts a character's identity. What does this mean in terms of the worlds represented in “Strictly Ballroom”? Explain The film ‘Strictly Ballroom’ by Baz Lurhman is a vivid representation of how a life lived in fear is a life that is half lived. This idea is being portrayed through many characters such as dough and scott. Both of these characters experience hardship throughout the movies of expressing who they truly are as they are afraid of the thoughts that people may have towards them both. This idea is continuously trying to be overcome by characters as they subconsciously know that if they are going to continue to live their life afraid they know it will only hold them back and not benefit them. Charater profile Doug immensly symbolises the idea of living a life in fear as he is holding onto an old dream as it is the only thing he has left and he is too afraid let anyone see. Due to this Doug seems to ot live in the present which leaves him behind and stops him from expressing himself and showing his true passion for dancing Doug Character profile Scott hastings is a vivid representation of how living a life in fear is a life half lived. Throughout the film we are able to see the barriers and struggles that scott needs to overcome to ensure that he can express himself and dance in his own way. This little bit of fear that he has is stopping him from exceeding his goals which correlates with the idea of how a life lived in fear is a life half lived, as if he lets the fear overtake then it will stop him from getting to where he belongs Scott Evidence Analysing scenes Dough, symbolism of back room Evidence 1 This scene represents what the cost of living of life in fear is because you have to give up on your dreams and let go of what makes you happy. The camera cuts highlight how Dough is so engrossed in the dancing that scott does. The low angle shots show the audience how dough is reminiscing on the past, what happened and what could've been different. Dough holding onto these memories highlight how dough doesn't want to let go of his past because he loves it so much. The pictures highlight every last bit of dancing that he can hold onto. Latin Finals, Disqualification and Love is in the Air Evidence 2 The voiceover signifies the confidence that scott is being given to perform this dance from the support provided from fran and her family, and the importance of expressing it without being held back from the rules. The heart beats it depicting the the suspense that is building up to whether scott will continue dancing. This scene is important in depicting to the audience how overcoming fear is the best way to be free to be yourself. This part of the movie is one of the most significant as we see fran and scott break down this wall of fear and dance their own dance. Link Summary Baz Luhrman continuously uses a variety of cinematography to help thicken the audiences understanding on the theme of identity and depicts the differences of how these characters are able to overcome this fear to build their own identities so that they can conform to themself instead of laying low in the shadows and hiding their true self.
