Abstract: »Paul Bartrop realizes the importance of media as far as rape as a weapon of war and genocide is concerned, but his chapter focuses on ways in which film might be used to combat such atrocity. While rape scenes in films about war and genocide have been relatively rare, Bartrop catalogs and analyzes a number of significant cinematic responses to rape as a weapon of war and genocide. His account supports the chapter's conclusion that the work of daring filmmakers, actors, and actresses may make an invaluable ethical and political contributing, one perhaps can be made in no other way.« (Source: Carol Rittner and John K.
