Mapping the `new violent cartography', an inter-articulation of geographic imaginaries and antagonisms, based on models of identity-difference, this article begins with the analysis of a piece of photo-journalism, an image of a US soldier in a bombed-out bunker during the war in Afghanistan, and goes on to trace the institutions that are part of the contemporary aspects of militarization and securitization constituting the `war on terror'. The article ends with an analysis of the anti-war impetus of cinema and the cinematic spaces of film festivals.
