Islam in film : A study of the depiction of Moslems in Movies (English)
Abstract [en]

Producing religion on film is not new and investigating the production of religion on film has also been done before. Popular culture has never been so present in our everyday life as it is today, therefore the interest in popular culture is big. This qualitative content analysis examines how Muslims are produced on film. The films used in the survey are: American Sniper, The Hurt Locker, Not without my daughter and Desert flower.

Previous research on the subject shows that films generally produce a stereotypical image of Muslims. Researchers argue that instead of showing that culture and individual may be the reason for some opinions or ways the angled the films to make it seem that everything has to do with Islam. The implicit message is then that only Islam is the cause of the Muslim mindset and action.

The results of my survey are the same results as previous research shows, Muslims are stereotypically produced, women wear veil and men are evil and aggressive.
