Transcript of Israeli Film Industry

Introduction Methodology Theoritical Framework
and significance Evidence/Analysis Counter Argument Conclusion QUESTIONS How does film construct social and political ideologies?

How is film used to represent Israeli cultural and political narratives?
Thesis Israeli films have become manifestations of social and political thought and promote socially constructed ideologies and narratives in a tension ridden and highly politicized society. Film has provided the people of Israel with a platform on which to construct a national identity that is inclusive of all cultural narratives, while in the realm of a highly politicized society that is deeply rooted in foreign policy. Analyze the role in which film has played in the construction of narratives and national ideologies on foreign policy by examining film (as a text), critiques, and the evolution of the film industry.

Primary Sources: Film and commentary of Israeli film directors and producers

It is these socially constructed ideologies that influence and shape the rhetoric of film as a text and allows for the evolution of film in society that has come to hold unsurpassable political implications and social importance.
