Symbol of the Kites
"I sat on a park bench near a willow tree. I thought about something Rahim Khan said just before he hung up, almost as an afterthought. There is a way to be good again."
Camera: Long Shot; Low Angle; Tilt Down Sound: Whimsical Non Diegetic Music; Diegetic sound of children laughing and playing Lighting: High Key Intended Effect: Begin to establish kites as an important symbol in the film.
Camera: Medium Shot on Adult Amir; Low Angle; Tilt Down from Kite and begin slow zoom onto Amir Sound: Diegetic sound of children laughing and playing Lighting: High Key Intended Effect: Establish Amir as an important character and establish a light hearted mood.
Camera: Close up on Amir; Tilt to High Canted Angle Sound: Diegetic faraway voice from the phone, saying "Amir? Amir you must come home to Afghanistan. There is a way for you to be good again." Sounds of children still playing in the background Lighting: High Key Intended Effect: Establish the conflict. The high canted angle should make the audience feel disoriented, just as Amir is disoriented by this news.
