Pariah

by Philana Payton

This particular scene uses crosscutting to juxtapose both landscape and lifestyle. Lead character Alike, is struggling with her own identity while navigating friendships and potential love interests. In doing so, directer, Dee Rees and, cinematographer, Bradford Young rely heavily on mood lighting as well as parallel editing to demonstrate both the internal and external conflict.
