Title: Militainment Inc. AVI
Runtime 123 mins
by Roger Stahl, University of Georgia
A resized version of Militainment Inc. Militainment Inc should
be considered a companion piece to War Made Easy by Norman Solomon. Similar stock footage is used and because of this the low resolution in resize is evident as in the original.
What Stahl adds to the mass media propaganda story is how civilian entertainment,
toys and other pop culture elements, have been militarized.
"Militainment, Inc." examines developing relationship between militarism and popular culture - especially the phenomenon of the entertaining war. Narrated and produced by University of Georgia Professor Roger Stahl, the film examines the relationship between the Pentagon and the entertainment industries in nine, 10-20min segments: Spectacle, Clean War, Technofetishism, Demonization, Reality TV, Sports, Toys, Video Games, and Dissent. The film will be distributed in the spring of 2007 with the Media Education Foundation."
Please support this piece through purchase for groups or libraries. The dvd release will be available in September 2007.
