Abstract/Artist Statement

The objective of this case study was to examine how the events of September 11 affected the film industry as well as how the industry dealt with issues surrounding the attacks. Topics include delayed releases of films, content editing and changes in the film industry itself. Research for this case study included interviews with a film studio distribution executive and a film studies professor from University of the Pacific. The conclusion drawn is that although studios did indeed act in order to protect their reputation and their bottom line, they were also sensitive to the grief and tragedy that the nation was experiencing.
