PQD Key Aspects

Here’s the PQD document we’re currently using in class for revision (PDF). I’ll post a more detailed explanation/application for the exam process for you after we’ve been through it on Wednesday. In the meantime, if you recall how I was pulling apart/teasing out the Broken Hill bar (Shirley) scene, you should consider doing something similar with other important scenes in the film.

Suggestions include:

  • Coober Pedy The drinking club (Adam after taking drugs)
  • The First People (Aborigines) camp
  • Kings Canyon
  • The charades ‘picnic’
  • Opening AND closing sequences
  • Broken Hill (Shirley)
  • Desert opera (Lyrics and explanation of relevance of the aria here Sempre Libera – for info, we only hear the first verse sung by Violetta)

There are, of course plenty of others you could look at. 🙂

Finally, there’s a really useful little synopsis and overview (short, but nothing wrong with that) that hints at the depth of the film. You can find it here: Curator’s Notes.

Almost forgot… click the pic for the full slides for Priscilla.
