Read and view the material on Eisenstein’s montage theory, mise en scene, composition and film terms (glossary). View Julie Taymor’s Titus (link below & in Week 5 Content). Pick a scene that incorporates montage and analyze it in terms of Eisenstein’s montage theory and it’s dramatic/literary underpinnings.
