The set of the photographs in Brief Encounters is elaborately designed just like a set for a film, each minor detail adds to the overall meaning and emotion of the photograph. In Thin Blue Line the various perspectives of people shown through the film were as if we were observing in a third-person view just like in many of Crewdsons’ photography. Although the two creative processes may vary, they both are similar in the aspects of providing meaning and emotion. Through the purpose of conveying a message or emotion as well from the process of creation, the dramatic reenactments in the movie Thin Blue Line relate to the staged photographs in Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters.
As I read what Zafon wrote about how some images and words had found its way into his heart, I had similar feelings as I read Fever 1793.

But people not only refused to believe his tales, they refused to listen. Some even insinuated that he only wanted their pity, that he was imagining things.
She was afraid of something really terrible happening to her that will cause her not to see Peak again. So she sacrificed her job to take care of her son, even though it was a risk because they needed the money. Also, in the book Zopa gets arrested by Captain Shek because the Captain assumed that Sun-jo was on the mountain illegally(which he was). All of the porters and Sherpas risked their jobs and tried to get Zopa out of the situation. Over a walkie, Josh states, “As soon as the porters and Sherpas herd about Zopa’s arrest, they all gathered around Shek’s headquarters to hold a silent vigil.
Parents are always supposed to look out for the best interests of their child. Anne Tyler authored the short story “Teenage Wasteland” which depicts the story of a strained mother and son relationship between the character Donny, and his mother Daisy.

His mother, Daisy is concerned with her son’s grades and behavior, however, she fails at getting her son the help that he requires.

Sternbuch bought visas for Jewish people and smuggled them over to Switzerland, missed her only son's bar mitzvah to protect 3 Jewish boys who were taken by the Natzis, she said to the German police that she would gave gone to the concentration camp if they did not let go of the Jewish boys and she paid off Himmer, a leader of the Natzi party.
I believe that, in recalling the Holocaust, the author’s decision to leave out certain elements with the intent to please their immediate audience actually adds to the viewer’s knowledge of the events. Those who documented their experiences many years later included less broad details than those who released theirs immediately afterwards. This is beneficial to the viewers of today and of future generations because it allows us to gain additional, intimate knowledge of these tragic events, which is important in preserving the memory and dignity of the
If we assume both this, and the fact that films can pack more story per hour in as compared to other types of sources, we find a key rationale for using films.
