The assignment is to relate the film Beasts of the Southern Wild to any essay in my textbook, “Film Theory and Criticism” by Leo Braudy and Marshall Cohen. It must be relating the film to ONLY ONE OF THE FOLLOWING TOPICS/ESSAYS:
1. Eisenstein’s 5 Methods of Montage, which could be found in the uploaded file on pages 9-14
2. Gunning’s “Narrative Discourse and the Narrative System”, http://www.faculty.english.ttu.edu/baugh/gunning.pdf
