Abstract [en]

For many of us living in the West, wildlife films may be the primary source to watch and learn about the lives of animals like lions, monkeys, and other” far of reach” animals. But how much of what we see in wildlife films is really true? Does wildlife film fall under documentary or does it fall under the category fiction? And how is the answer to this question relevant for gender studies as a scientific field? The purpose of this essay is to investigate the way in which gender is being represented in wildlife films from a constructivist perspective. The essay is based on two wildlife films from different production companies: BBC and National Geographic. With the support of previous research by Hillevi Ganetz and Malin Ah-King, I conclude that the way animals are being represented in wildlife films shows connections to the Victorian age regarding ideas of gender, and even Darwinism when it comes to sexual reproduction.The result of the study indicates that the way in which animals are being represented in wildlife films is very relevant for how we understand gender and sexuality in modern society.
