Militainment, Inc.

Militainment, Inc. is a critical documentary film that offers a fascinating, disturbing, and timely glimpse into the militarization of American popular culture. The film examines how U.S. news coverage has come to resemble Hollywood film, video games, and “reality television” in its glamorization of war. Mobilizing an astonishing range of media examples – from news anchors’ idolatry of military machinery to the impact of government propaganda on war reporting – the film asks: How has war taken its place in the culture as an entertainment spectacle? And how does presenting war as entertainment affect the ability of citizens to evaluate the necessity and real human costs of military action? The film is broken down into nine sections, each between 10 and 20 minutes in length. Written, Produced, and Narrated by Roger Stahl. Distributed by the Media Education Foundation.
