Wilson goes to Hollywood: State-Propaganda-Film

Erika Anita Kiss

Back to "Fall 2019" courses

We will explore the various forms of interaction among state, commercial and artistic power to control information flows through film. In light of normative concerns about free speech and using concrete cinematic examples, we aim to determine normatively relevant criteria to distinguish between creative, critical, and satirical expressions of art on the one hand, and propagandistic incitement to hatred and violence as well as pornographic incitement for sexual domination and violence, on the other.
