Summary
A few days after 9/11, US Vice-President Dick Cheney invoked the need for the USA to work 'the dark side' in its global 'War on Terror'. This book explores how contemporary cinema treats state-sponsored atrocity, evoking multiple landscapes of state terror. It investigates the ethical potential of cinematic atrocity images, arguing that while films help to create and confirm normative perceptions about atrocities, they can also disrupt those perceptions and build different ones. The book provides readers with fresh insights into how we respond to atrocity images and the ethical issues at stake
