PURCELL, Fernando. CINE, PROPAGANDA Y EL MUNDO DE DISNEY EN CHILE DURANTE LA SEGUNDA GUERRA MUNDIAL. Historia (Santiago) [online]. 2010, vol.43, n.2, pp. 487-522. ISSN 0717-7194. doi: 10.4067/S0717-71942010000200005.
This article studies the phenomena and the impact of propaganda film from the United States in Chile during the World War II. I argue that the series of film projects planned and created by the United States during the conflict were part of a cultural diplomacy that was not separated from Washington's main diplomatic guidelines. On the contrary the close connection between the Hollywood film industry and the Department of State is evident. Independent of specific negative reactions associated with representations that hurt Chilean identity, film and other forms of propaganda were largely circulated throughout the country and contributed to the consolidation of the United State's message within the Chilean population.
