La conférence de Munich à l'écran

Abstract : With a succession of bringing together and comparisons, we are planning to analyze the cinematographic memory of the Munich Conference. By taking the Sudete crisis as a topic, the purpose of this study is to show how is built the memory of a major event in the circumstantial rising to war chronicle, understood as determining in the background of a study on news setting. Film documents can, as well as written ones, help for the immediate knowledge of history, by deciphering various codes, revealing through special means the specificity of the connection between the production context of a film and its reading. This disclosure weight, though, doesn't only come out of obvious reminiscent clues revealed through narrative images, but also of representational effects of recurrences providing its historicity to the cinematographic narration, that is its inscription in a second textuality, defying expectation and appearing as years go by. This research, carrying out a systematic inventory of the products related to our subject, results in the exposure of an inventory problem bound to the Munich Conference, an event which representations on screen always perform a destruction of the historical subject. The sacrifice notion structures the moral landscape released by these documents, thus basing on an expiation ground the modern mythology that Nazism has become.
