The "Disguised" Political Film in Contemporary Hollywood: A Genre's Construction by Despoina-Betty Kaklamanidou

With strict guidelines on methodology and time frame -- films produced after September 2001, and a socio-semiotic theoretical framework -- Betty Kaklamanidou unpacks the problematic terms and ideas that go along with defining a new genre.
