Framed and Spliced: Hollywood's Search for "The Story" in History

Panels now being created for those interested in Historical Fiction.

Particular interest in establishing a panel on the following:

>From DW Griffith's take on American history in Birth of a Nation to Steven
Spielberg's version of the ‘50s and a ‘50s con artist in Catch Me If You
Can, Hollywood has searched for "the story" in history, reorganizing the
chronology of events to sell history on the Big Screen. How fictive is
history on the Big Screen?
