OK that is a LOT of subject matter to cram into an essay but lets see.
Knowledge issue: Do movies have the power to distort history?
Sub knowledge issues:
Discuss "history written by victors" idea
Examine whether popular memory (most peoples recollection of a certain event) is based more on first-hand accounts (i.e. they experienced it or know someone who did) or media portrayal
Discuss role of time (as more time passes between the event, we have less sources to rely on and media becomes more and more important)
Possible movies to be discussed:
Hope this helped in some way good luck.

Knowledge issue could be media portrayal of things and it's affect on life. Can't think of how to phrase it, but something to do with how the media skews things, something quite sociological y'know?
