Kaitlyn Belen B. Hennig Art 101 Film Analysis Fall 2016 The Mill and the Cross We watched the 2011 drama film, “The Mill and the Cross” directed by Lech Majewski. The film was inspired by the Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s 1564 painting, The Procession to Calvary and Michael Gibson’s book of the same title. The film follows the lives of a few of the people depicted in the painting. Bruegel is also portrayed as he explains the different structures and symbolism that can to be in his painting. A few things that happen during the film include Spanish troops that seize a man, whip him, and then leave him on top of a cart wheel to be eaten by birds while his wife watches and cries. We are also shown the lives of those who run the mill and what they do in the morning to get it started. The different creative elements such as the CGI that were put in the film were so low quality that it could make anyone cringe but I think that that is what the director wanted and aimed for. There was an equal mix of 2D and 3D imagery, and bluescreen photography.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
