MetadataShow full metadata
The Bosnian War was a conflict that occurred in a little known European country after the fall of the Iron Curtain and break-up of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. The purpose of this study is to compare and contrast the films from the Hollywood and Eastern European arenas. This study will specifically examine the Hollywood blockbuster Behind Enemy Lines and the Serbian film, Pretty Village, Pretty Flame in contrast with one another. Each of these films creates a discourse which influences many other films about the war and how films about the conflict are presented.
