Social contexts in L’Inchiesta and Risen

of 9/11 felt like a violation, pointing to the fact that the USA was no longer invulnerable. It was a divine apocalypse brought to our reality. Karen Armstrong argued that 9/11 revealed a reality that had always existed but which was invisible. The atrocities showed how extremely unstable our position is in a world where most people feel underprivileged and defenceless ( 2003 : 107), in brief, living in a world dominated by injustice. The September 11 terrorist attack ‘deeply upset the religious faith of the Americans who believed in an omnipotent, just, and

Simple (but not simplistic) moral tales about power and authority, these films are clearly on a par with Yaaba and Tilaï but they have not received much attention from critics and have not been screened widely. Although these works have failed to

meeting was held between key political and entertainment industry figures (including Karl Rove and Jack Valenti) to discuss cultural responses to the 9/11 attacks. The New York Times reported in March 2002 that ‘the Pentagon’s image builders take Hollywood just as seriously as they take the news media, if not more so … In the wake of September 11, the military sees what television analysts call “militainment” as one of the most effective ways to get its message across’ (as cited by Frazier, 2002: 4). Since one of the central themes of US foreign policy since World War

Wyatt, High Concept: Movies and Marketing in Hollywood (Austin, University of Texas Press, 1994), pp. 20–2. Nevertheless, some documentaries have been effectively pre-sold on the basis of their stars and/or subject matter. These include various music documentaries and, in the latter category, films based on already mediated news events, including the previously televised bus hijack retold in Bus 174, and Michael Moore’s reworking of September 11th and the Columbine shooting in Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine.

, theaters, and theater owners. (Lindlof 2008 : 9) While the above films received some media attention, often from many of the same groups that condemned Temptation , the attention and controversy never reached the same heights, in part I would argue because of the film’s historical and cultural moment. ‘Occasionally the culture wars cool off, as they did in the months following September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. But inevitably the heat turns up again when conditions are right for new conflicts to claim the public’s attention’ (Lindlof 2008 : 311). In many ways

High-profile self-defense cases, horrific school shootings in a Columbine, Colorado high school and on the campuses of 84 Gunslinging justice Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University, the terrorist hijackings and attacks of September 11, 2001, and a succession of military invasions abroad—most notably in Iraq and Afghanistan—not to mention the shooting of Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords in 2011 (during which six bystanders were killed)—have significantly increased a public sense that we are ever
