Here's a link to Godard & Gorin's film 'A Letter to Jane' (1972). This film was mentioned in chpt 4 of Sontag's 'On Photography', part of the reading list for this week. The film is a cinematic essay that deconstructs a news photograph of Jane Fonda in Hanoi taken by photographer Joseph Kraft. It provides insight on how to read a photograph and discern both the the intentional and unintentional meaning of its framing, subject, angle, focus, setting and how this relates to the given caption, particularly in parts iii-vi of the video link.
Film Links: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI.
