<p>Battle, East Sussex has a traumatic past and the ghosts are ever-present, but the dead cannot speak. Eschewing the talking head interview and subjective interpretations of history, &#039;The Lost Battle&#039; was filmed on location at the 950th anniversary &#039;re-enactment&#039; of the Battle of Hastings. By observing this staged &#039;spectacle&#039;, we attempt to both mimic and undermine simulations of the &quot;real&quot; in televised docudramas.<br />
<br />
Created for submission to University of Sussex as part of the MA Digital Documentary, &#039;The Lost Battle&#039; depicts a &#039;tribal&#039; ritual that rather than honoring the fallen, is representative of a collective search for lost identity in the form of simulated violence. In turn, we attempt to call into question the glorified representation of war in mainstream &#039;Hollywood&#039; fiction film by appropriating its very tropes and in turn, blurring the distinctions of documentary and fiction film.<br />
