Uddrag

Title

The title of the short film “Prom” by Imran J. Khan has both a literal and symbolic meaning.

In the literal sense, the title refers to the event that Hasan, the main character, is preparing to go to. The idea that Hasan is going to prom is conveyed in the film through his formal clothing and careful preparations, as well as through the fact that he buys a corsage for Bethany and through his interaction with the employee in the shop where he buys the corsage. The title itself is also displayed on-screen as Hasan begins his journey, leaving little doubt as to where he is going.

The symbolic meaning of the title is tied to prom as a tradition in American culture. Prom is seen as an important tradition for teenagers because it is a celebration of the years that they spent in high school. Prom is also typically a rite of passage for young people, marking their growing-up process and their transition from teenagers to adults. Moreover, having a date for prom can make one feel accepted and included.
