Margins of the image : framing and deframing in the graphic novel and the film V for Vendetta
This thesis is an analysis of the graphic novel and its film adaptation V for Vendetta in terms of the concepts of framing and deframing. The theoretical framework is mainly derived from the reflections of Pascal Bonitzer, Gilles Deleuze, and Jacques Derrida. It is contended in this study that both the graphic novel and the film V for Vendetta are culturally deframing texts in different ways, and that they trigger the audiences’ already present reactions towards certain political frames and framings. As a result, it is argued and exemplified that both of the texts have become one single text, perceived as a “symbol of resistance” throughout the world.
