>Early film historian Terry Ramsaye once wrote that World War I "contributed

>production and exhibition than previously considered.

>War I documentaries, including but definitely not limited to:
>
>-	Individual films and filmmakers
>
>-	National cinemas
>
>-	Wartime newsreels
>
>-	Coverage of specific battles
>
>-	Film exhibition during the war
>
>-	International distribution during this period
>
>-	Depictions of national identity, race, ethnicity, gender and/or
>sexuality
>
>-	Use of "real" footage in WWI fiction films
>

>newsreels in a specific country or region
>
