Difference, Power, and Discrimination
Write a 7-8 paragraph essay analyzing how issues of DPD (Difference, Power, and Discrimination) are represented in Brokeback Mountatin.
You can watch the film from:
Please use the structure below:
First paragraph: start by describing a specific scene or image from the film, a personal connection you have to this media text, or a key statistic/news item/quotation to lure the reader’s interest and set them up for your thesis. Your paper should be organized around a central thesis or argument you make about how effectively and/or ineffectively the film represents issues of difference, power, and discrimination and how that representation is accomplished through specific visual and audio techniques (editing, sound design, visual design/mise en scene, cinematography, and/or literary design).
Second paragraph: introduce key contextual information about the film including a basic plot/character summary, historical or cultural context about the topic(s) represented in the film, important information about the film’s cast and crew and/or the how the film was made that will help the reader understand your analysis paragraphs. An outside source quotation or paraphrase with a citation will likely be required for this paragraph.
Third paragraph: focus on Difference by providing specific examples of scenes, characters, and elements of mise-en-scene, camerawork, editing, sound design, and other elements that you included in your notes that help explain how representations of Difference are encoded into the film and decoded by you. You might find movie reviews, cast information, or scholarly articles on this film or related films to be particularly useful. An outside source quotation or paraphrase with a citation will likely be required for this paragraph.
Fourth paragraph: consider how Power can be expressed in many different ways both within the diagetic world of the film’s narrative and on/off the set during production. An outside source quotation or paraphrase with a citation will likely be required for this paragraph.
Fifth paragraph: While difference and power are always present in media texts, Discrimination is not always overtly represented on screen. For this paragraph, analyze the ways that discrimination directly and/or indirectly represented on screen and consider whether the production background of the film (or perhaps its cast and crew) could be connected to aspects of discrimination that occur in the film industry or in society more broadly.
Sixth paragraph: Introduce a potential counterargument or simply an alternative perspective on this film that you found in a review or user comment online or from a classmate that has also watched this media text. Or you might use this paragraph to share more research you found about how the film was made or how the specific DPD issues you have analyzed thus far intersect with other DPD issues or just other social/historical issues you know about or have learned about in another class.
Seventh paragraph: Write a personal response/reaction to this media text. Why was this the one text you chose out of the gajillions of things out there for you to watch and consume. You could share a story from your personal, work, school life that makes this text interesting (please write this to suite a Chinese international student and a boy), you could relate this film to other texts in this genre that you’ve seen and share your opinions about trends you’re seeing in this genre, you could wax philosophical about what this film inspires you to think about, you could …. well, you get the idea. Just remember that if you are choosing to share this publicly that it will be out there for as long as the internet exists; so I suggest being vague enough on specific details that would violate your privacy or that of someone you know.
Eight paragraph: Any good paper should circle back to where the reader entered the writer’s perspective, so be sure to remind the reader about the the scene, story, example, etc. that started your essay and use that as a transition into a conclusion that ties together the loose threads and helps the reader understand why the issues represented in this film are relevant and also whether or not you would recommend the film to your reader.
This essay is a high school level, please use simple English language to write.
You need to find 3 reliable sources on top of the film by yourself and cite them in MLA style.
I also uploaded a MLA_Requirement.pdf and you must refer to it and write 100% correct in-text citations and “Works Cited” Page. Failure to use correct citations will fail me in the essay since my professor was extremely picky. After receiving your paper, I will check every in-text citation and make sure they are from the right page, NOT fake citation. If you do not use correct citations, I may request a full refund. I don’t hope this to happen so please be responsible.
