FRAMED by Marco Jemolo

“The choice to reward this short film was based on various aspects: stop-motion, used both as an animation technique and as a topic of story, the meta-cinematographic theme of the person’s and actor’s conjuring, and a perfect combination of technique and ideas. Considering the science-fiction field, this short film stands out for the power of the message and the engaging claustrophobia.”

COLD SKIN di Xavier Gens
“For the appropriate synthesis of spectacular devices and narrative genres and the ambition of a moral fable in a world at the threshold of a world war, in an alternation of powerful natural images, extravagant expectations, hallucinating appearances, notions about nature and man. a film imagined for the big screen that does not fear classicism and is not afraid to excite the spectator but also to engage in reflections on complex themes. A type of Cinema we miss.”

Lord Of The Flies Darkness Of A Man's Heart

Year 10 Common Task - Semester 1, 2013

Classic 20th Century Novel Study - Lord of the Flies

Originally published in 1954, William Golding's Lord of the Flies has become one of the classics of contemporary literature. The novel is about a group of young boys stranded alone on an island and left to fend for themselves. In an attempt to model their previous world without the influence of adults, the order that had once existed soon decays and is replaced by the chaos that destroys their ordered and civilised cultures. Though fictional, Lord of the Flies deals with deep moral questions of how humans are essentially barbaric in their most primitive state. Golding conveys his idea of the 'darkness of a man's heart' successfully through effective use of allegory, symbolism, and his perception of a dystopian society.

Lord of the Flies can be viewed as a political allegory of the Cold War. Golding served in the Royal Navy and recalling later his war experiences, he remarked that "man produces evil, as a bee produces honey." The Cold War was a struggle between two super power ideologies - Democracy and Communism, signified by Ralph and Jack respectively. Near the close of the novel, the boys are rescued by a naval commander who came ashore in his boat whilst the boys were playing savages. The irony is that after he brings the boys home, the naval commander will return to sea and engage in a far larger game of violence called war. Thus, Golding makes a point that the island is a microcosmic representation of the conflict between democracy and communism in the war. When the boys are first deserted on the island, they behave like children, alternating between enjoying their freedom and expressing profound homesickness and fear. By the end of the novel, however, they mirror the warlike behaviour of the Home Counties, attacking, torturing and murdering one another without hesitation or regret due to the lack of government and order. Ralph weeps "for the end of innocence" and the "darkness of a man's heart" (p 248) upon reunification with the real world and realisation that evil lurks within all human beings.

Symbolism plays a major role in Lord of the Flies. Through the rich use of symbolism, Golding reveals that humans detached from society's rules allow themselves to be dominated by the evil within them. The Lord of the Flies and the Beast are two major symbols that enforce the Golding's idea of 'the darkness in a man's heart'. They are not really physical characters, but rather the evil in every human being.Simon is the first one on the island to...
