Eve's Bayou - Use of Mirrors and Blocking

by Philana Payton

Mozelle (Debbi Morgan) recalls the deadly showdown that occurred between Hosea (Marcus Lyle Brown) and Maynard (Leonard L. Thomas).

In a single shot with masterful use of a mirror and blocking, the retelling of the story happens both in present time and flashback. It is a scene that merges both past and present in its play with time.
