Description

This text takes as its starting point Bazin's question "What is cinema?" and asks what the construct of a "national" cinema means. It looks at the broader concept from a different angle, taking film beyond the confines of "art" into the broader cultural world. O'Regan's analysis situates Australian cinema in its historical and cultural perspective producing a useful insight into the issues that have been raised by film policy, the cinema market place and public discourse on film production strategies. Since 1970 Australian film has enjoyed a revival. This book contains detailed critiques of the key films of this period and uses them to illustrate the recent theories on the international and Australian cinema industries. its conclusions on the nature of the nation's cinema and the discourses within it are relevant within a far wider context; film as a global phenomenon.
