Visual Literacy

the concept of visual literacy
Martin Scorsese "there are certain tools you use, and those tools become part of a vocabulary that's just as valid as that vocabulary that is used in literature and our language" --> "how ideas and emotions are expressed through a visual form" --> "to make an emotional and psychological point to an audience" --> "story can be rain hitting on a tree, leaves"
