Wars, nationalism, economic depression, colonisation, decolonisation and, more recently, globalisation, have affected perceptions of contemporary as well as past worlds. Cinema, a popular medium directed to the broadest possible audience, has reacted to and in turn shaped the changing political, social and economic conditions of the times. This book investigates how the cinematic medium negotiated the dominant ideas of history in order to construct a range of historical imageries. Focusing on the medieval epoch—a notion of historical age which came only during the colonial period as an equivalent to the European idea of Middle Ages—it studies the influences of various nationalist imaginations of the past, unmistakably present after the emergence of a mass-based nationalist movement in the 1920s and 30s.Printed Pages: 348.
