Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This paper examines the expression of attitudes in Medias, specifically documentaries. Firstly presenting a brief sight through the history of modern time Israel, and secondly with the use of thorough discursive analysis, analysis of filmic effects and a general criticism of sources, it will attempt to conclude the differentiating views and positions expressed in the Medias. To specify the different positions we will analyse the obviously different documentaries respectively the pro-Israeli “The Case for Israel” and the pro-Palestinian “Occupation 101”. Both documentaries use similar filmic effects to imply their subjective positions as the “right one”. As an example, both documentaries use frequent representations of conflict-zones. Both documentaries picture the people they are vouching for, as the victims of hideous crimes against humanity. The conflict is obviously not black and white, but the documentaries attempt to express it as such. Through a comparison of the results of the analysis, the paper attempts to conclude the presentations of the conflicts as effective methods to affect the viewers to feel pity and chose the subjective positions on the conflict.
