Today we learnt about the other side to narratives. These were anti-narrative and non-linear narrative. The term anti-narrative refers to a narrative which resists narrative conventions. We watched a French film, un Chien Andalou, a silent movie that fell under the category anti-narrative.
Non-Linear refers to the ‘telling of a story’ that layers, overlaps, super-imposes and sometimes reverses, chronologies. Two short videos we looked at were Migration, about animals in an American motel and Alter Bahnhof video walk, a pre-recorded story taken from the same location as the user.
