ANTI-NUCLEAR WAR FILM AND ATTITUDE CHANGE

Abstract

The content of an anti-nuclear war film was found to change attitudes toward nuclear war. Twenty-six male and female undergraduates were shown the film "If You Love This Planet," while another twenty-six were shown a neutral film. The anti-nuclear war film produced more positive attitudes toward activism and protest against nuclear war. The study provided evidence that a film can change attitudes toward nuclear war and that males are more optimistic about the future of the human race and are more willing to die for their country than females.
