– means “placing on stage” – as an expression used to describe design aspects of a theatre or film production (visual theme)


Mise en scène is the arrangement of scenery and stage properties in a play. Translated from French, it means “setting the stage” but, in film analysis, the term mise en scene refers to everything in front of the camera, including the set design, lighting, and actors

With the absence of sound and words, one can observe tone, meaning, and narrative information conveyed through mise-en-scène.
