Ross Kemp and Bryn Parry, Co-Founder of Help for Heroes, in conversation with RUSI Director-General Michael Clarke about their relationship with the military and how the front line affects everyone who goes to it.
How does the film industry deal with war in the twenty-first century?
Jon Amiel, British film-maker and Dave Brown, President of Motion Picture and Literary at Hollywood Studios International, discussed their experiences in making films about war and in dealing with history at the first event in RUSI's initiative to look again at the changing relationship between contemporary conflict and modern western culture.
RUSI has launched a new 'Conflict, War and Culture' initiative to look again at the changing relationship between contemporary conflict and modern Western culture. The worlds of the arts, media and the creative industries have traditionally reflected a wide range of attitudes towards war and conflict at any given time. They have an honourable tradition in doing so, one which will doubtless continue.
This programme aims to reach out to key figures in the world of the arts and media in order to structure the Institute's approach to the relationship between war and culture around these cutting-edge artists' perceptions. Using the personal insights of performers, artists and creators, RUSI wants to redefine the nature of the conflict and culture relationship for our society in the twenty-first century.
