The Rabbit Proof Fence
Transcript of The Rabbit Proof Fence
Mr. Neville is the stubborn antagonist of the Rabbit Proof Fence he was the chief protector of aborigines in Western Australia, but he didn’t do a great job. Mr. Neville is the reason many indigenous Australians lives where stolen in the 1940’s, he was truly hated by all indigenous Australians at the time. Mr. Neville’s story started when he had an idea to change Australia as we know it, he was to get rid of all the full aboriginal children and “train” aboriginal half caste children to be WHITE. His plan was to set up camps around Australia like Moore River where half caste children were chosen (stolen) to attend the camp and live. Neville was the chief of the chase for Molly, Gracie and Daisy.
The Rabbit Proof Fence
Molly Craig is the eldest of the 2 girls Daisy and Gracie who also feature in the rabbit proof-fence. She comes across to be a particularly brave 14 year old girl. Who has great traits which were convenient on her exhausting journey across Australia. Molly lives next to Fence number 1 in a small town which there culture is high at risk because of the white Australians. Molly and her sister daisy are Half-Cast, which make her and her sister wanted by Mr. Neville. Molly started her stressful journey when she was stolen by a stubborn police officer and put on a train to Moore River. The facial expression on Molly’s face at Moore river Camp was filled with plain disgust with what Neville was trying to do with her. Molly is clearly the protagonist in the story.
Daisy is a supporting character in the film rabbit proof fence. She helps tell the story of Molly Craig. Daisy is a crucial part to the story considering since she was under molly’s order threw their journey back home. Daisy was not too keen to leave the Camp where they were being taught how to be white Australians you can tell by her body action and facial expressions that she wasn’t too impressed to leave knowing the danger if they got caught. Being very young daisy probably didn’t have a choice. Daisy help put of Moodoo who was tracking them by sacrificing her bag to throw him off track. Daisy was the sister of Molly and the cousin of Gracie. She was also a half caste child.
Climax- Gracie has been recaptured
Camera shot/ Angle: Full shot/ Eye level
Explanation: The Full shot technique was used in this Scene because simply because they want you to see the full chase of Gracie. A full shot is when you can see the subjects FULL body and setting they are in. you can also see what is happening behind the characters like the setting or another conflict. The eye level angle was used in this scene so they can depict the reality and really include the audience like they are at the encounter of the situation. This could be helpful for the audience to catch the full depiction of the scene and really be included. This scene is the climax of the film because it gets really intense during the chase and even though the hunt for the girls is half complete the intense moment sort of dies out
Eye level/ medium
Explanation- in this scene they want you to be the protagonist molly and see what she sees and what she sees in Mr. Neville. It also shows a bit of exaggeration because I thought it exaggerated his level a bit like he was the most vital of them all. It also shows us what molly is thinking of him by how fast she walks towards him. The medium shot was used I think to get a close up of Mr. Neville but also the back round of the scene so you can see the reactions of the other characters and how they react to the scene. This also helps you sort of infer what the characters expressions are by the extra characters behind. The medium also can tell you how far away the character is from the subject.
Close Up/ Eye level
Explanation- in this scene photo. They have used a very effective close up shot. This helps us determine what the character is thinking or going threw at the time of the scene. You can determine what the emotions of the character are. This can also be a crucial point if the want to hold suspense in the moment which can change by making the story more powerful for the audience and change your opinion or view of the film. Eye level shot is used again during this scene and wants you to see their whole face as if they are looking into a mirror. I think this the most important shot because you catch everything in the face so you know and can almost feel the emotions the character feels. The eye level shot also includes you onto the level of the movie
Long shot/ high angle shot/Climax
Explanation: During this scene there is a long shot which is used. It has an enormous effect on the audiences perceptive. It shows the beautiful or hideous surrounding which the character is caught up in. it can show how far a characters journey is and their determination to complete it which was used a lot in the rabbit proof fence. I think this Scene was during the climax of the story since you can notice there are only two girls in the picture which means that Gracie was retaken/stolen from Molly. The have also used a high angle shot to represent a minor perspective on the character. It also could signify that the audience is in power at this point of the movie, making the subject appear weaker or not as important compared to their surroundings.
Eye level/ close up shot
Explanation: In this scene there is a close up so you can see the just the three characters and their emotions. They used this type of shot for this scene so you can sort of describe the way the characters where feeling and what was going through their head by the facial expression brought up by a close up shot. They have used the eye level shot I presume because they want you to look in to the characters eyes and not miss the emotional moment that is taking place. This scene also took place during the inciting incident when they have just been stolen by the White Australians and this is when the story kicks off and is most exciting or devastating. They situated this scene to catch the audience and get them fired up for what was yet to come.
