Lectures: Young Filmmakers for Peace

IS THERE AN ANTI-WAR FILM?
Prof. Dr. Marcus Stiglegger

While many famous film classics from Hollywood and all over the world could be considered to be genuine war films - from ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT via APOCALYPSE NOW to THE THIN RED LINE - the genre itself is subject to intense discussions. Especially in Germany, where the militaristic option has always been in question after World War II, war films have the reputation of glorifying violence and combat as well as the military system itself. While countries with a strong military system like the USA, England or Russia have a vivid production of war films, in Germany the preferred way to deal with the subject is in form of critical 'anti-war films'. Within this discourse also international productions are considered to be 'anti-war' - but are films like SAVING PRIVATE RYAN or BLACK HAWK DOWN actually 'against war' as a political option?
The course will discuss the question if there actually is an 'anti-war film' by taking a closer look at international productions like ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, THE BRIDGE, COME AND SEE and THE THIN RED LINE e.g.
