Abstract:
This is an original piece of research that addresses a much neglected area in documentary film. The study encompasses 26 documentaries produced by 10 different countries and examines them in terms of international perspectives, documentary form and function, and political debates. The first part of the thesis explores the international political context and the various rivalries and alliances that played a part in the conflict. The second part provides a detailed examination of the 26 documentaries providing both textual and contextual analysis. The third part is devoted to film theory and cultural theory.
