Question and answer
Q: Explain the difference between a film's story and a film's plot. Use a specific film to illustrate your point of view. In the film you chose, are the events presented chronologically or are they
presented non-linearly? What might a film maker's intentions be when he or she chooses to present events chronologically or in a non-linear order? How are elements like character development or foreshadowing used differently between the two storytelling methods?
A: Explaining the difference between a film’s story and a film’s plot. A film’s story is the whole point of the movie; it describes what the character was trying to accomplish telling the viewers. [ A story’s plot is everything else about the movie, the arrangement of incidents, ideas, or events. Use a specific film to illustrate your point of view. In the movie The Color Purple (Spielberg, 1985),
the story is about a young African-American girl and depicts the problems (poverty, racism, and sexism) African-American women faced during the early 1900’s. the plot is Southern United States during the 1900’s. In the film you chose, are the events presented chronologically or are they presented non-linearly? The events are presented in chronological order, because the film starts when the main character (Celie) is 14 years old and it follows her through life showing the actual events in her life as they arise. What might a filmmaker’s intentions be when he or she chooses to present events chronologically or in non-linear order? A filmmaker may decide to put films in chronological order so the viewer may keep up with the story of the film better, but may decide to put them out of chronological order (non-linear order) to maintain suspense in the film. How are elements like character development or foreshadowing used differently between the two storytelling methods? When using chronological order in films character development is important, because it develops the character from one stage of their life to the next stage whereas, foreshadowing gives hints or clues to suggest what is yet to happen in the film. ]
