Danilo E. Chaves ESSAY ANSWER TO QUESTION #1 Dziga Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera and Robert Flaherty’s Nanook of the North were both conceived as educational devices. While both attempt to give viewers a new perspective on filmmaking, both differentiate significantly from each other regarding the delivered message, the context and the aesthetics. Vertov’s film aims to increase people’s awareness about the process of filmmaking, while Flaherty’s attempts to revive the viewers long lost “innocent eyes” by focusing on a preconceived Romantic perspective. As an important part of the Soviet Cultural Revolution, Vertov’s works were conceived mainly to transform people’s consciousness regarding political and social matters. Increasing the critical awareness and thought of the masses towards the deception of film was one of Vertov’s main goals as a filmmaker.

They all appear to be dark and uninhabited; since the whole town have limited access to her own privacy and the author does not explicitly state any thing about her inner life, readers will be allowed to have their own guesses and suspense until the end. The second section seems to associate with the third one where the author takes all readers back to the past; Miss Emily’s father’s death and the relationship between her and Homer Barron dramatically affect on her behaviors and bizarre events around her house.

Question: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Jindabyne are feature film adaptations of short stories. Which is the better adaptation and why? “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” written by F.
