Abstract: 

This research evaluates the flourish of “Defa-e-Moqaddas” (war between Iran and Iraq) in Iranian movies from 1981 to 2006 in the art sociology of art. In other words, the purpose of this article is not to review the nature of “Defa-e-Moqaddas”, but is about how the cinema has represented the “eight- year war between Iran and Iraq”. The theoretical framework of this research is based on two complementary reflections and shaping approaches that according to them, art is the reflection of social situations and also it is used to shape public opinion. Qualitative content analysis method is applied in this study to achieve a deeper understanding the structure and functioning “Defa-e-Moqaddas” films. Despite the differences of classifications, in which, films are categorized in war group and war critic group, results show that the most films of this genre propagandize war and also they are very violent due to the special sensitivity of this genre. Although qualitative and quantitative changes have been occurred in cinema products during three past decades, the feedbacks of “Defa-e-Moqaddas’’ events have been less studied and most of the films have tried to shape public opinion, however they have been unsuccessful in the long-term.
