The Hurricane (Viewing Task) How well does the composer talk by means of ones hat the audition to believe that Rubin Carter was falsely incriminate found on racial discrimination (1000-1500 words) There are human universey ways the composer of the 1999 movie The Hurricane manipulates the hearing to believe that Rubin Carter was wrongly acc employ ground on racial discrimination. The see to it ways in which the composer does this is through the body structure of the movie and the use of proficiencys much(prenominal) as non-linear structure and foreshadowing.This movie is about an African American man who is faced with many complications over the shape of his life including being wrongly accuse of killing 3 people which lead to life imprisonment. The composer positions the attestor of the movie The Hurricane to believe that Rubin Carter played by Denzil Washington was wrongly acc apply establish on Racial discrimination. This is cleverly done with the very Rubin Carter contend a key character in providing tout ensemble the voice overs and having a strong influence in how the movie is directed and seen.Characterisation also plays a key role in the way the composer manipulates the hearing to believe that Rubin Carter was wrongly accused based on racial discrimination. This is achieved by showing except(prenominal) Rubins side of the story and portrait him as being inured completely below the belt and unjustly which is completely biased. The composer is also qualified to manipulate the audience through his characterisation of the prison staff and patrol officers in the movie.They are portrayed as being corrupt and this is shown through conference such as the scene when one of the dupes of a shooting is on his death bed and is asked by the police officers to identify whether or non Rubin was the man who shot him. When the man replies no, the police officer seriously asks Sir look closer, are you sure these arent the men? as if to intimidate the victim into identifying Rubin as the perpetrator.The police officer is then portrayed to be racist as he goes on to say Im passing play to take you black ass down which contributes greatly to the perception that the police officer is corrupt and that Rubin Carter was wrongly accused based on racial discrimination. The movie depicts the opposing legal team that are battling for Carter to be kept in jail as very racist. They constantly refer to Carter with a maven of disgust because he is an African American. The use of these techniques only agree weight to the dioramas of Rubin Carter which in turn makes the movie completely bias and anipulates the audience to believe that Rubins side is truthful and correct and that he was really a victim of racial discrimination. Non-Linear structure also contributes to the way the composer effectively manipulates the audience to believe that Rubin Carter was wrongly accused based on racial discrimination. Non-linear structur e is where effects such as tear backs are used which in turn means that not all events that take break through in the movie are in chronological order which creates the sense that slightlything is hidden Isabella Moro Monday, 3 December 2012 15518 PM AET r not yet revealed to place the viewer in a position where they are able to fill in the gaps. The use of non-linear structure is present through the whole movie but the main rivet is on one particular scene where Rubin is arrested shortly after gunman shots were fired. More and more of these scenes are revealed over the course of the movie persuading the audience that Rubin is innocent because the flash backs (especially those in black and white) are portrayed as being completely factual and non-bias.However, what we have to remember is that the story is button up being told from Rubin Carters point of view and therefore the accuracy of the flash backs are un-reliable. By using non-linear structure, the composer has been able to subtly and successfully act upon the audience that the story is factual and has therefore achieved to manipulate their views. Non-Linear structure is a key way that the composer successfully manipulates the audience to believe that Rubin Carter was wrongly accused based on racial discrimination.Anformer(a) technique used over the course of The Hurricane is foreshadowing, this technique is also a very effective technique used by the composer to manipulate the audience into believing that Rubin Carter was wrongly accused based on racial discrimination. Foreshadowing shows the build up of something significant such as a key event or a diverseness in a characters attitude or nucleus beliefs. Foreshadowing is shown in particular over the course of the movie when Rubin Carter is in jail.There is a build up over time showing the disparate emotions Rubin went through, from being depress and showing a lot of anger towards everyone, to a complete change of character when he met Lezra and his three other Canadian friends. Rubin is then put in a position where he has to pick out between whether or not to trust these white people to jockstrap him, or if he is just going to go back to his shorttempered, depressed self. This is a significant part of the movie as all other events shown so far lead up to this decision.After deep thought and a mental battle Ruben decides to choose to fight for his freedom as he knows he has been unlawfully engrossed due to racism. The use of foreshadowing in this instance tries to portray Rubin Carter as a tortured victim of racial discrimination. The use of foreshadowing in this movie is a key technique the composer uses to successfully manipulate the audience to believe that Rubin Hurricane Carter was wrongly accused of murdering three innocent people due to a decision solely based on his race.In conclusion, the movie The Hurricane is not a reliable representation of the events that led to the imprisonment of Rubin Hurricane Carter and is in fact a bias depiction of the real life events told from the point of view of Rubin Carter himself. The movie expresses his views on how he was unfairly accused of murder because of his race. Through the use of characterisation, non-linear structure and foreshadowing the composer is able to manipulate and effectively convince the audience that Rubin Carter was wrongly jailed based on racial discrimination. The Hurricane (Viewing Task) Isabella Moro Monday, 3 December 2012 15518 PM AETThe HurricaneThe tear The Hurricane directed by Norman Jewison claims to accurately depict the life of injustice suffered by middleweight champion Rubin Hurricane Carter. The managing director uses casting, characterisation, spunk and euphony in order to convince the audience of Carters innocence. Jewison uses evidence, in some cases false, to manipulate the audience into believing that the Hurricane is and always has been an innocent man. This clever usage is clearly spare in his casting and characterization choices of Lezra to emotionally endue audiences into his journey alongside Rubin Carters.This technique is also used to create and unadulterated the other cast members to guide viewers thoughts and opinions as the director wishes. Furthermore, the lighting and medical specialty are blatantly manoeuvred to garner an emotional response from audiences, this is apparent in the poignant scenes of Carter as the victim of tragic injustice. Without Jewisons clear bias filmmaking, the audiences would have been left with a different view of Carter. Casting and characterization in the film The Hurricane are utilized to stockpile viewers of The Hurricanes innocence.The casting of the characters Rubin Carter, Lezra Martin, Lisa Peters, Sam Chaiton, Terry Swinton and Lt. Jimmy Williams was obligatory to create the image of goodness, as we associate attractive people with being good and kind hearted. Athletically appealing actors have been cast in all these roles in ord er for us to automatically assume them to be good. However, Det. Sgt. Della Pesca and the prison house Warden (the major villains) are cast as old, overweight, balding men to moderate us of their wickedness.By casting Rubin Carter as an attractive man the director persuades us into believing in Carters innocence. Furthermore, the character of Lezra Martin is carefully created to work as an audience stand in for the film. This technique is used so Lezra industrial plant as our stand in to Carters life. Lezra, like the viewer is revolutionary to Carters life and his story, while he learns about Carter, so do the audience, as he grows to love and trust Carter, so do the audience. equivalent Lezra the viewers become attached and emotionally vested in The Hurricane, so the mocking of his innocence becomes ludicrous to the viewers.The film technique of manipulating the viewers survey is also found in the use of lighting. The use of lighting in the film The Hurricane positions the vi ewer into trusting that Hurricane Carter is an innocent man. Jewisons use of lighting to persuade the viewer is evident in an early scene depicting Carter and Della Pesca facing towards each other, the only light in the frame is on the operating table behind them, so the audience can only see the side on silhouettes of both Rubin Carter and Det. Sgt.Della Pesca but no dilate in their faces. In this scene, we see the stark contrast of their profiles, The Hurricanes fleecy features and Della Pescas pointed and upturned features. This technique which has been used since the times of ancient Grecian theatre is used to depict the proganist , ordinarily the hero, with soft flowing features and the antagonist, usually the villain, with sharp, pointed features. By doing this, Norman Jewison has automatically positioned the audience to see Rubin Carter as a good and innocent man.This sort of positioning is also particularly evident in Jewisons use of music in the film. Norman Jewison emo tionally influences the viewer into believing that Carter is innocent through his meticulous use of music in The Hurricane. The audience slowly finds themselves emotionally attached to the story through subtle but effective music. At various points in the film a grave, slow, low, jazz melody plays which always coincides with a scene where the viewers are positioned to believe injustice is shown.When Della Pesca interrogates a young Rubin Carter, when Rubin is brought into the hospital of the victim, during The Hurricanes first trail as well as when Carter is put into hermit confinement by the ruthless prison warden. The audience is persuaded into associating this music with injustice, so with the use of this music at the right point, such as when The Hurricane is imprisoned the viewers automatically believe it is injustice, which causes us to feel emotionally naturalized by this and believe in his innocence.Norman Jewison positions viewers of the film The Hurricane to see Rubin Ca rter as an innocent man. This is done through casting the protagonists role to an aesthetically pleasing man, the casting of the antagonists role to an older, unseductive man, the characterisation of Lezra Martin, the precise lighting of scenes and the meticulous use of emotion triggering music. Without these manipulative film techniques, viewers would have been left with a different image of Rubin Carter and a greater doubt of his innocence.
