Daniel Feige: Media Autopsy of War – Autopsy of the Media War


*About Brian De Palma’s “Redacted“ (R: Brian De Palma; USA/Kanada 2007)*
*Part of the lecture series “Narration and Justification in the Cinema“*

Narratives have always been used to legitimize moral and political states. With its audio-visual character, the cinema holds a special status in this context. On the basis of three film examples – Redacted, I’m Not There and Minority Report, Daniel Feige, Juliane Rebentisch and Josef Früchtl will discuss whether and how cinematic narrations contribute – or can contribute – to the legitimation and/or delegitimation of normative attitudes and orders.
