Episode 4. Lost at Sea

For our first week that focuses on a specific theme in films rather than a director, we dive right into three films which are structured around characters who are lost at sea: Lifeboat (1944), Life of Pi (2012), and All is Lost (2013). We talk about the ways film technology has made this type of film more accessible to both large and small budget productions, the narrative implications of beginning your story at the “dark night of the soul” moment, and how the lost at sea “genre” can be expanded and adapted.
