Presentation Title

The Painted Veil: The Cinematography of Distance

Student Presenter(s) and Advisor

Elizabeth Hyzy '14, Lake Forest CollegeFollow

Location

Meyer Auditorium

Abstract

I will investigate the artistic decisions director John Curran makes in The Painted Veil (2006). After explaining how Curran orchestrated key scenes, I will show how these moments emphasize the movie’s major theme of overcoming distance--personal and political--and sway the viewers’ emotions. Specifically, the contrast between the movie’s early, awkward shots and its later, more intimate moments highlight the main characters’ transforming relationship.
