The paper raises the issue of the methodological problem of topography of a film landscape.
For this approach are equally important – the visual discourse oriented on an aesthetic analysis
mode and the cultural practices enabling to recognize the elements of life and experience in
the processes of film perception and transformation of landscapes. The fundamental thesis is
the statement that it is possible to use the practice of visual mapping to explore a landscape
and place. The mapping in a film is understood as at the same time a way of thinking of
a creator (director, operator) and a recipient of a work (a viewer), which is connected with
adopting by them certain point of view and the application/ discovering of a specific tactics.
Among the strategies of mapping, according to Teresa Castro, there were distinguished the
following: chorography (description), topophilia (love of place) and surveying.
