Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to examine popular cultures impact on the social and collective memory in the post 9/11 era, more specific visual medias reconstruction of the traumatic event of September 11, 2001. The movies that will be in the center of this paper is World Trade Center (2006) produced by Oliver Stone and Zero Dark Thirty (2012) by Kathryn Bigelow. This paper will argue that the movie World Trade Center and Zero Dark Thirty is maintaining and reproducing the ideological discourses set by the Bush-administration after the events of September 11. The result of the investigated movies is that they are characterized by “we against the other” perspective and is reproducing stereotypes that will function as a mean to exclusion of minority’s. This is linked to the social and the collective memory. Where social and collective identities define, who belongs or not.
