Film and “Tangerine” Movie

LGBTQIA character is Ellen DeGeneres from the Ellen show. 2. A response to this week’s film screening “Tangerine” and Ryan’s lecture. Your response must address questions posed at the end of Lecture 1 and/or take the following into consideration: Sean Baker, the director of “Tangerine”, is a white, cis-gender, heterosexual man. Considering that the primary characters represented in the film are transgender women of color, does this information about the director matter? Does this change your perspective on the film? How/Why? Knowing this, do you still consider “Tangerine” to be a Queer film? Explain why or why not. Responses should be thoughtful, substantial, and demonstrate that you have thoroughly engaged with the course materials (reading, lecture, film). Non-academic responses such as “That was good” or “I liked it” WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Ryan’s Lecture Watch films and learn to be more Actively. Learn to critique films on a deeper level beyond those kind of initial subjective responses, if I liked it or I didn’t like it. It’s really important to remember that films are made in a vacuum. Films are made in a world where all sorts of things are happening, whether it be political things, social things, environmental things. And all those things that are happening out in the world influence filmmakers and the art that they make. Now, films also communicate things to us, Films tell us things, and a large part of how film theory works is this idea that somebody goes out and they make a film and people watch it and they enjoy it or they don’t enjoy it or they pick it apart, they discuss it but theorists will come and watch it and discuss how that film functions. What the film communicates, how that film communicates and whether or not that communication is successful and whether or not what is supposed to be communicated is being communicated.and are there other messages or other things that the film is communicating that maybe weren’t necessarily intended by the filmmakers or maybe they were intended by the filmmakers? But they’re problematic. All films try to manipulate us. That is a part of visual storytelling. Part of a major part of filmmaking is for filmmakers to get the viewer to see and interpret audio visual content in the way that the filmmaker wants us to see things. The filmmaker wants us to interpret things in a certain way through the way that the film is constructed. So filmmakers are not passive.Filmmakers are trying to get us to see things in a certain way and to interpret the on screen action and scenes in a way specific way. F
