War and the experience of individuals in wartime have been central to the movie narrative across a range of cinemas. Equally, popular understandings of particular wars and their national significance are frequently derived from cinematic representation. Screening Hollywood, European and Australian films, this course will examine representations of war and their significance for national identity and popular understanding as well as in the development of cinema history.
