Abstract

In his book Katz, Steven D. "Film Directing Shot by Shot: Visualizing from Concept to Screen. Woburn, MA: Focal Press, 1991." States "in order to fully understand a film we must realize that every aspect of the screen from the camera angle to the background objects is orchestrated by the concept of the movie and that nothing is without a purpose". Using this obvious logic and basic semiotic analysis I will try to prove that Stanley Kubrick, in his film "The Shinning" tried to separate the story from the meaning, namely that "The Shining" is, amongst other things, about the genocide of Native Americans by early settlers and their successors and the tendency of contemporary American society to overlook that.
