"how art can imitate reality and represent nature. When elements that define a nation’s historical and cultural identity appear in popular films, it is possible to see such imitation in action." p 1 "Hollywood, is actually more of an international than simply American phenomenon." p 1 "A sense of identity and belonging according to what was presented and reinforced in a national cinema became an important tool for the creation of national cultural consensuses" p 3 "Centralization allowed for the creation of national cultural consensus through the propagation of models of behavior displayed in the cinema" p 3 "The happy-ending pattern affirmed in Hollywood’s classical studio period " p 3 Idea of everyone, including Hollywood, copying hollywood to try and find a formula that people will enjoy p 4 " The centralized power in charge of production and censorship may promote certain narrative conventions favorable to their political world view.

"My question is: can screen history help us think through this issue of nationality?" p 20 Against American films, others were and continue to be defined against by their localness or national identity p 21 "National and local specificity became an important component of the new forms of cultural impact that film was having during the 1960s, especially the extent to which it was reshaping people’s awareness of the world, both at home and internationally" pp. 22-3 Criteria for 'national film': "Some of their criteria are industrial, relating to place of production, national employment quota, and registration of companies involved. Others seek to guarantee the cultural identity of the work, by requiring some proportion of its creative personnel to be nationals, on the assumption that this will make the work ipso facto “national”—even though there is no guarantee that, for instance, a French team will not make a facsimile of a US thriller" p 23 ==> "It is easy to question and even ridicule such criteria, with points awarded for the nationality of director, writer, composer, and the like" p 24 "Another challenge to the “essentialist” concept of national cinema is growing academic enthusiasm for the “transnational”—a concept that seems to serve as a kind of benevolent counterpart to the perceived evil of globalization" p 24 "a renewed appetite for the local, the specific, and the “original” in many areas of consumption, encouraging us also to value cultural works that trace origins, show the local surviving against modern odds, or take us to exotically unfamiliar lands and cultures" p 24 "ambassadorial role" p 24 "Films can also become “national” in the sense of speaking for and to the nation at moments of political crisis and liberation." p 25 "Most historical narratives of national cinema draw heavily, if not exclusively, on films that enjoy some international reputation: effectively, they display national production at its most exportable" p 26 "the insight by Elsaesser and others that the “national” is intrinsically relational—dependent on who and where the observer is and on the institutions involved" p 28

Historical context: " The Brazilian military, which supported Vargas in the 1930s, established its own dictatorship in 1964. Although initially endorsed by the middle classes, the military government grew increasingly unpopular. Brazil saw unprecedented restrictions on civil liberties and an escalation in violations of human rights. Censorship and corruption were rampant as the government orchestrated an official Brazilian patriotism" p 633 " Bruno Barreto's 1997 film Four Days in September creates a window onto this tumultuous period in Brazilian history" p 633 " Based on the testimony of Fernando Gabeira in his 1979 book" p 633 " While remaining true to the spirit of Gabeira's testimony, Barreto and screenwriter Leopoldo Serran have taken several poetic liberties to adapt his work to the silver screen" - focus on characters - individual motivations - relationships/interactions p 633 " opted to tell this story employing techniques from the political thriller, a move that not only makes the story accessible to American audiences but also uncannily recalls the tensions within a population that was heavily censored and controlled." p 633 " Many of the members of MR-8 were middle-class "revolutionaries" untrained in guerrilla tactics and guided only by a naive or vague sense of revolutionary struggle" p 633 " Complete with historical legends illustrating important dates and places, and black-and-white footage from the time period, Four Days in September offers students of history insight into the complexities of life under dictatorship" p 633 " By filming a local soccer match at the Maracana stadium, a huge structure with a capacity for 200,000 spectators, Barreto recalls that this historical era was also a time of growing Brazilian patriotism and popular class celebration." p 633 " Barreto is careful not to create heroes and villains; rather, he recalls the multiplicity of emotions and responses to Brazilian dictatorship." p 634

Because both the kidnappers and the ambassador are portrayed sympathetically, Four Days in September challenges "the official War-on-Terrorism rhetoric" p 210 "THIRD CINEMA-STYLE CRITICAL FILMS" =/ Hollywood style films p 213 "In contrast to Hollywood-style productions with their binary, we/they, good/bad discourse, well-known actors, highly manipulated cinematography, War-on-Terrorism world-view and heroic narratives, Third Cinema-style films strive, above all, to make a political statement." p 213 "The result has been an iconoclastic cinema that developed independently in different parts of the world" p 214 "Their open-endedness also challenges Hollywood films' typical closure" p 215 "with extensive documentary footage" p 215 "Four Days in September leans heavily towards an informational kind of authenticity. Stephen Holden has called the film ‘an uneasy hybrid of political thriller and high-minded meditation on terrorism, its psychology and its consequences’ (Holden 1998: 1)." p 215
