Romulus my Father by Raymond Gaita( the novel ) is excellent.

Motorcycle Diaries ( Che Guevara ( the actual diary) is outstanding.

Both have physical journeys that engage with the emotional, psychological, intellectual depth required for AOS.

Uhh.. Having many supp. texts beforehand will really help you..

Or so I'm told...

You need to prepare yourself, this isn't something you can just "wing" on the day HAHAH =D

I am going to use the move "Blood Diamond" for one of my texts, and people that keep asking for help or notes this is not the place, this thread is for listing the texts.

Hey I'm doing Rabbit Proof Fence and Two Beds and a Coffee Machine by Savage Garden as my related material. I was thinking of doing the Motorcycle Diaries movie trailer as my second related material. When using a movie trailer look at the use of montage, voice overs, writing, music and how it conveys the concept of physical journey and what you learn about physical journey etc etc.
Hope this helps someone using a film trailer.


ps. Other ideas for related material.
Homeward Bound.
Return to Oz (lesser known than Wizard of Oz, you'll get away with much more).


JUST REMEMBER PEOPLE, RELATE YOUR TEXTS BY PHYSICAL JOURNEY AND NOT BY THEMES!!

also remember in your essays not to just say the composer uses a certain technique, explain WHY! and what is the effect of it and how it conveys the idea of physical journey.
