Subjective and objective point of view as metaphor in Mitko Panov's With Raised Hands
Abstract:What are we watching here? What is the nature of our discomfort? The point of view established in the opening of With Raised Hands – through the lens of a German camera recording the round-up of Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto – uncomfortably implicates us in this act of violence. The subsequent shifts in point of view are also supported by temporal shifts, both of which function at deeper, metaphorical levels to support the developing story.
