Abstract [en]

This paper is on propaganda in Clint Eastwoods

American Sniper (2014). With this film in focus I have conducted a qualitative discourse analysis to extract subtle hints of propaganda in selected scenes from the film. I proceed from theories that discuss propaganda, orientalism and us-and-them, but I have also researched government pressures on film, and media research on its influence on people. This paper shows in combination with these theories that propagandistic messages can be identified through mainly the use of us-and-them. In American Sniper (2014) the image of USA is strengthen by establishing a negative and wrongful portrayal of their counterparts, making them nothing but evil or helpless.
