“The Freemasons are useful to the Regime” – Freemasonry and Cinema

The “poking the beehive” series will come back with its season finale, or not… Meanwhile, I would like to share my most recent article, published in the last volume of REHMLAC+ (Revista de Estudios Históricos de la Masonería Latinoamericana y Caribeña).

The whole journal is worth reading, and you will find amazing articles on the theme “Freemasonry and Mass Culture”. “Rehmlac+” is an Open Access Journal and you can find it HERE.

My article, “The Freemasons are useful to the regime”:An analysis of the representations of Freemasonry in cinema and its utility on reinforcing or criticizing the establishment” , approaches the questions on the representations of Freemasonry in Cinema, mainly, in the context of what Giorgio Agambem theorized as “States of Exception”.

To think about this particular aspect I choose three movies:

Les Forces Occultes (France, 1943)

Independência ou Morte (Brazil, 1972)

Un Borghese Piccolo Piccolo (Italy, 1977)
