Abstract

By examining early film reenactments of the Boer War, the proposed paper seeks to illuminate how on-location reconstructions tend to reify the value of British imperialism, while films produced in studios by non-British production companies are less ideological, reflecting the ambivalence other first-world countries felt toward British intervention in South Africa.
