More Things  Love About ATLA

Goal: Write 1 thought every day re: why I love ATLA (until I finish rewatching the series)

#17: Parallel confrontations in “The Day of Black Sun.”

Aang and Zuko both confront – or at least think they’re about to confront – the Fire Lord in “The Day of Black Sun.” And I love the subtle contrast between the prelude to each confrontation because it reflects where they are in their development. 

Aang thinks he’s about to fight the Fire Lord: he doesn’t know it’s Azula waiting for him behind this door.  But the angles the show uses subtly communicate that Aang is not yet ready to face the Fire Lord. Look at how enormous this door appears, and how it’s accentuated by the angle that the show chooses to use.

Aang is looking upward at a seemingly unconquerable goal:

By contrast, Zuko is ready for his showdown with the Fire Lord.  He’s been preparing for this for a season and a half. So the door he has to open is much more manageable in size.  Compare how much of the door frame Zuko fills here with the earlier shot of Aang:

And when we see Zuko’s face, it’s from an angle below. He’s looking down at his goal because he – unlike Aang at this point – is truly ready to confront the Fire Lord:

atlas;
are your shoulders sore?
do they ache with the weight
of humanity
of our sins?

atlas;
are your feet sore?
as you stand in the cosmos
star born and star made
stuck between black holes

atlas;
are you sorry?
or do you forgive us?
even as we wear you down
with wars we made on your shoulders
