Discussing such films as Chinatown, Pocahontas, Gorillas in the Mist, Medicine Man, and The China Syndrome. David Ingram explores the way those movies and others construct certain attitudes toward nature and the environment -- whether it is the myth of purity that turns Native Americans into ecologists or the relationship between the protection of endangered species and anti-hunting attitudes. Ingram argues that Hollywood cinema has largely perpetuated romantic attitudes toward nature and has played an important ideological role in the "greenwashing" of ecological discourses."@en ;
