Dawn of the Planet of the Apes | Perspective in Storytelling

by Films&Stuff

The best science fiction takes existing conflicts and ideas in our everyday lives and exaggerates them, challenging our preconceived ideas and then taking them to their logical conclusion. Films&Stuff discusses Matt Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, demonstrating how much of the story depends on perspective, both character perspective and characters’ preconceived biases.
