Flashback to something that happened BEFORE beginning of film b. Ex: movie is set in 2016, and we flashback to an event in 2005 2) Internal a. Flashback to something that happened within diegetic timeline of film i. Repetition: shows something we’ve already seen (so we see it when it’s in the present and when it’s in the past) ii. Gap filling: part of diegetic timeline but we haven’t seen it before; something omitted (ellipsis) (like if a character goes to the store off-screen, and then later we see what happened at the store) Ellipsis: an omission, a temporal void in the narrative. Different from “meanwhile” logic! o “meanwhile” logic: two things happening at same time o Ellipsis: “6 months later”, period of time completely removed
