Orientation of the look of a character onscreen; its direction orients the audience to something in the diegesis and enables to build spatial relationships within a scene

The kid orienting to the wardrobe indicates that the voice is coming from it in Bunuel’s “the discreet charm of the bourgeoisie”


Related induced effect: Eyeline match; 180 degrees rule

(Colin, [2003?])
