La Mission


1) Choose a short scene in La Mission and conduct a close textual and/or visual analysis of that scene. Structure your
response as follows:

a) Provide a time marker (i.e. 33:14-35:46) AND a summary of no more than 2 lines so that we can identify which scene you’re
talking about
b) Note the scene’s pertinent visual details (i.e. lighting, camera angle, props, wardrobe) OR transcribe a few sentences of
relevant dialogue and then…
Select 1-2 of the visual details OR the dialogue you mention and then…
c) ***Focus on this part: explain how this component functions (as a symbol, cultural marker, or to create a certain dynamic)
in relation to specific characters AND as a commentary on key course themes (i.e. heteropatriarchy, etc.)

I introduced the following theorization of heteropatriarchy by Andrea Smith:
“the way our society is fundamentally based on male dominance—a dominance inherently built on a gender binary system that
presumes heterosexuality as a social norm.”[1]
This week, Dana Collins and her colleagues make the following comment about Peter Bratt, director of La Mission: “For Bratt,
film has the power to transform and he strives to accomplish this transformation by conveying critical, political and
spiritual messages as a way to resist what he describes as ‘cultures of domination’” (Collins et. al, “A Feminist World,”
How do La Mission’s characters—especially Che, Jesse, and Lena—n avigate through the challenges of heteropatriarchy and
related “ cultures of domination,” (i.e. homophobia, hypermasculinity, misogyny, abusive relationships/gendered violence,
racism, classism, or neighborhood gentrification)? How does each character’s choice to either enable, resist, or reject
manifestations of heteropatriarchy influence each of the film’s interracial relationships?
