Don Quizzote 3.0 - For a few shots more...

This is the second round of Don Quizzote 3.0 conducted by yours truly. Don Quizzote is the flagship quizzing extravaganza of Team RenQuizza, Jorhat, Assam which is conducted in irregular intervals due to the organisers' incapability to have any command on the financial whims of an event like the Don. The Don has mostly been organised without any serious sponsor and has managed to acquire a cult status among Assam Quizzing.

  11. 11. The Kuleshov experiment. In the early 20th century, Russian filmmaker and theorist Lev Kuleshov discovered that a single shot of an actor with an ambiguous expression on his face could convey a multitude of very distinct meanings in the mind of the viewer, depending on the nature of the shot immediately preceding it. In 1918 he conducted his famous experiment using a single shot of the silent film actor Ivan Mozzhukhin’s face looking at something off-camera. Kuleshov spliced it in with a series of quite different images–a bowl of soup, a dead child, a scantily clad woman and discovered that the audience would interpret Mozzhukhin’s emotion (hunger, pity, lust) depending on the juxtaposition.
