Cinema of Australia and New Zealand by Geoff Mayer

Book Description

From "The Story of the Kelly Gang" in 1906 to the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, Australia and New Zealand have made a unique impact on international cinema. This book celebrates the commercially successful narrative feature films produced by these film cultures, as well as key documentaries, shorts and independent films. This coverage also invokes issues involving national identity, race, history and the ability of two small film cultures to survive the economic and cultural threat from Hollywood. Chapters on well-known films, and directors, such as "The Year of Living Dangerously" (Peter Weir, 1982), "The Piano" (Jane Campion, 1993), "Fellowship of the Ring" (Peter Jackson, 2001) and "Rabbit Proof Fence" (Philip Noyce, 2002) are included with less celebrated, but equally important, films and film-makers, such as "Jedda" (Charles Chauvel, 1955), "They're a Weird Mob" (Michael Powell, 1966), "Vigil" (Vincent Ward, 1984) and "The Goddess of 1967" (Clara Law, 2000).
