HOW IS RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM REPRESENTED IN THE FILMS FOUR LIONS AND RED STATE? REBECCA WHITAKER BA MEDIA AND COMMUNICATIONS (TELEVISION) 2013 HOW IS RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM REPRESENTED IN THE FILMS FOUR LIONS AND RED STATE? REBECCA WHITAKER BA MEDIA AND COMMUNICATION (TELEVISION) 2013 Word Count: 12,796 Abstract: This thesis looks at the representation of religious extremism in film and the wider relationship with religion and the media. Key issues and debates addressed with this research and its findings are the limited research currently available regarding extremism in particular, despite the resurgence of interest in religious theology and film. In order to research this area a semiotic analysis was applied to the two films Four Lions and Red State to allow for a broader look at both Islamic and Christian extremism, analysing how shot size and composition as well as mise-en-scené and iconography have been used to contradict of reinforce established representations by the media. These findings are referenced and explored in the theoretical framework of representation, religion in film and controversial and satirical films; I argue that these films deconstruct the myth of religious extremists. Dedicated to my Nan and Grandad for their endless support Acknowledgments: Many thanks to my friends, family and partner who have put up with the constant state of stress I’ve been in for the past six months. Also thank you to my supervisor Oliver Carter who helped me to streamline my ideas and get this research done. Thanks to Donna O’Neill
