The Birds – Bodega Bay

by Brendan Kredell

This is the sequence analyzed by Raymond Bellour in "System of a Fragment." It depicts Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) renting a boat, crossing Bodega Bay to drop off a present, and returning. On her return trip she's attacked by the titular Birds.

Bellour uses this sequence to illustrate his method of sequence analysis in "System of a Fragment," demonstrating how to understand the structural organization of the sequence by breaking it down into individual shots.
