The first presentation focuses on narrative elements that are maintained in retelling. Focusing on the Exodus as it appears in comic books, illustrated educational texts, and film pre-production images, we will see how plot, character, and setting are maintained. Examples shared in this lecture include: The Ten Commandments (film, 1956), and Exodus: Gods and Kings (film, 2014). We will pay close attention to elements of the written text that remain in the final product.
