US War Propaganda in Film: Patriotism and the Politics
In the course of the last century, the 'enemies' of the US have donned many different masks -- Nazi, Japanese, communist, Vietnamese, Korean, Arab . . Aimed to educate and mobilize popular support for military actions against the "other", war propaganda has taken many forms. Through the medium of film, it has often imagined futuristic dystopias of the battle between good (us) and evil (them), inspiring fear and racism under the guise of promoting a stable national identity and patriotic duty. This film festival offers a sample of recent Hollywood war propaganda, as well as a selection of films aiming to critique it.
