Beyond The Hill (Emin Alper, 2012) is focused on the interactions of a family of men operating as a homosocial group. These family interactions provide a ground for socialization, enabling masculinity to take the form of a social construction. To conceal their crimes, the men unite into male homosociality by adopting the dominant masculinity. The resulting unison, solidarity, and secure environment reinforce male hegemony and enable the family to act like a nation and an army. This article analyses the male homosociality that unites the various masculinities of men in the family. It also discusses aspects of western iconography.
