Bland anne ova works on the oscars

  1. 1. S Zero Dark 30 By anne bland
  2. 2. Film proven troubling to others S Family members of 9/11 victims find the movie troubling. S Many are upset due to the graphic nature of the film and it’s depiction of torture.
  3. 3. The director of the film defends the use of torture in the film S The director characterized torture as “reprehensible.” but found it necessary in the film to correctly portray history.
  4. 4. The CIA stated issues with the film’s claim of being historically accurate S former officials say the film failed to accurately show the events played out during the hunt for Osama bin Laden.
  5. 5. The CIA possibly helped shape the film’s script S In a newly released declassified document, the CIA details several specific instances in which they requested screenwriter Mark Boal to change or eliminate scenes. S In the original draft of the film, main character Maya (played by Jessica Chastain) participates in a torture scene where a prisoner is waterboarded and shoved into a small box. The CIA requested this be changed. S Boal acknowledged his cooperation with the agency, but denied that their input detracted from the final product.
  6. 6. Senators were very upset by the film’s waterboarding scene S The "torture scene" issue was first brought into attention when Frank Brunni of The New York Times criticized the early sequence of the Osama bin Laden hunt film, which featured an agent named Dan (portrayed Clarke) who went violent toward a detainee. "The movie shows a detainee being strung up by his wrists, sexually humiliated, deprived of sleep, made to feel as if he's drowning and shoved into a box smaller than a coffin,” S Since then, some senators began to slam the movie, urging Sony Pictures to add a disclaimer to the film. In an open letter written for the studio on Wednesday, December 19, those senators stated, "We believe the film is grossly inaccurate and misleading”.
  7. 7. Path connections S 1. Many are upset due to the graphic nature of the film and it’s depiction of torture. S 2. because they are upset the director addresses it explaining it’s necessary to be historically accurate S 3. the CIA states that the director is wrong because the film is not historically accurate S 4. Although the CIA objected to some of the content, it is possible the CIA actually helped design the script S 5. The director left scenes in the film that the CIA had asked to be removed.
