Storyboard Text

  • The man says good bye to his family
  • Sailing away to a new life
  • A strange, new land
  • Summary: The man says farewell to his family in their run down tenement apartment as he prepares to leave for the new country Readers Response: This frame shows off the cultural lense in that saying goodbye to one's family is a difficult experience. However, it is bittersweet in that he is leaving to pursue new opportunities to support them.
  •               New Opportunities
  • Summary: The man boards the ship, stepping away from his old life, and into a new one Readers Response: This frame displayes the archetypal lense in that it is one of many periods of transition. When he steps on the boat, and presumably watches the land slowly disappear on the horizon he begins his new life.
  • Simple happiness
  • Summary: The man arrives in the new land feeling overwhelmed by all the foreign faces, and sights Readers Response: This frame shows the marxist lens in that he is overwhelmed, and possibly scared of where he is. It is a lot to take in at once and he feels uncomfortable because he does not have the power of understanding the way of the land
  • The reunion
  • Summary: The man finds work in a factory, doing menial quality control work Readers response: This frame shows the marxist lens in that he has now found the work that he emigrated for in the first place. Finally, he has got his chickens in an order, and while difficult work he finds power in having established himself in the new land.
  • Summary: The man along with friends play an odd game in the countryside Readers Response: This shows off the culture lens. This is because the man has met another immigrant in his new job that takes him under his wing by including him when going out with friends. Even though being in a new place is uncomfortable these new friends, and the peace of the moment comfort him.
  • Summary: The man experiences his long awaited reunion with his family Readers Response: This frame shows off the marxist lens because after a long period of time he finally has everything he could dream of in the new land. He knows how to buy groceries (which he explains to his daughter), he has a job, and at the end of the day everything worked out
