We assumed that sport and history is perspective symbolic union; and we addressed the following issue to representation of history in sport feature films. The research states that the sport film might be an alternative way of screening the past alongside with political history and wars, “the military past” (the most replicated image of the country in popular cinema segment). Thus, the study aims to identify the links between such areas as films, sports, and history, to analyze and describe the image of the past, narrative and semiotic structure of contemporary historical film.
