Conflict in its many dimensions and manifestations is a psychosocial and political phenomenon that has seen new manifestations and representations today, namely in cinema, journalism, and criminal investigation. New events emerge everywhere, tragedies are updated and power relations are altered. Instability, imbalances and injustice, perversity and fear coexist with radical and fundamentalist discourses and practices.   The urgency of thought is not compatible with the speed of decisions or the immediacy of the media. That is why this international conference, by articulating different levels and combining different research experiences, aims to contribute to a transdisciplinary discussion, with the ambition of facing challenges and tricky questions.

To discuss the various approaches of cinema to the phenomena of war and urban crime and violence, this meeting brings together two approaches in which different areas of knowledge will intersect, intersecting crime, violence, and art, cinema, seeking to bring to debate issues related to violence and war, from a current perspective and a multidisciplinary and multifaceted vision. The joint event – I International Conference Cinema & Conflict: war and violence and the V OPVC: War & Violence – will bring together students and researchers on the 19th and 20th of October, at Fernando Pessoa University (Porto – Portugal). Therefore, this joint event, by articulating, different levels and by making compatible different research experiences, aims to contribute to a transdisciplinary discussion, with the ambition to face challenges and tricky questions.

Call for Papers


 Deadline for abstract submission: September 15


The history of cinema is intertwined with one of its main themes: war. From D. W. Griffith’s infamous and technically innovative “The Birth of a Nation” (1915, USA), whose background is the Secession War in the United States, to the cinema that exposes barbarism, such as the visceral classic ” Come and See ” (“Idi i Smotri”, USSR, 1985) directed by Elem Klimov, the gaze of countless directors on these conflicts, which often transcend any possibility of rational understanding, permeates the entire spectrum of human emotions: The excitement of victory, the exaltation of heroism of soldiers and civilians, the repulsion and horror in the face of the unspeakable, the confusion, the ridicule, the fear, and even love – be it the romantic love that flourishes in war, between allies and enemies, or the violent passion that takes over animalised soldiers at the battlefront.

One of the first feature films known, the Italian “Quo Vadis”, directed in 1912 by Enrico Guazzoni, is in a certain sense a war film, “made as a tool to legitimate the Italian imperialistic expansion” (Teixeira da Silva, p. 3). Not by chance, it is released in the same year in which the Italo-Turkish War ends.  War cinema has often been, after all, also a cinema of propaganda, used to dehumanize opponents, exalt allies and justify atrocities – whether in fictional or documentary form.

But the violence of armed conflicts is not restricted to the battle fronts. On the big screen, urban violence is another constant theme, which provokes in us a strange fascination. It is a territory of serial killers and nocturnal predators, disturbed and lonely, who roam the streets in search of their next victim. Horror, cinema claims, is often not at the front, thousands of miles away from us, but next door, where the unknown lurks.

To discuss the various approaches of cinema in relation to the phenomena of war and urban crime and violence, the 1st International Conference Cinema and Conflict will bring together students and researchers on 19 October, at Fernando Pessoa University (Porto).

Those interested in presenting papers on this theme should send their proposals, according to the instructions below:
