Reading images - setting
The two images above are stills taken from Sausage (2014) and Between Us (2004), clips of which we will watch in a few steps time.
These two stills establish the settings for the films. Take a look at them and see if you can answer the following questions (with reasoning):
- The settings for each of these films are strongly contrasting. Where do you think each story is set?
- How can you tell what time of day the story is taking place?
- What mood is created by the setting?
- What time in history do you think the stories are set?

For use in class, the images and questions above are column headers in the downloadable resources available at the bottom of this page. The resources will help you to collect answers from children working individually, in small groups, or as a class exercise.
