Why We Fight

October 6, 2010

Am I the only one that is reminded of the old superman cartoons like this one   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WScaWdl6TEk .  This was my first time really watching any form of propaganda films and i found it very interesting how the American filmmaker used the same video clips form Germany, Japan and Italy but just changed the voice overlap.  I guess these images were very powerful and evoke different emotions in people depending on what is being said as the film is being played, I found that very interesting.

    The link to the Superman cartoon is really great– not only is there a connection in terms of the use of sound and voiceover, but also in terms of ideology. While the audience and genre are of course very different, both films paint very simplified versions of good versus evil during times of conflict. Even works that are “pure entertainment” convey a message, especially during times of war.
