Historical Dictionaries of Literature and the Arts #6: Historical Dictionary of Australian and New Zealand Cinema Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is an introduction and guide to the film of Australia and New Zealand. It contains entries on many exceptional producers, directors, writers and actors, as well as films. But it also presents the early pioneers, the cinemas themselves, the film companies and government bodies, and much more in its hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries. Through a chronology that shows how far these cinemas have come in a short time and an introduction that presents them more broadly, a clear portrait of the two countries' motion pictures emerge. The bibliography is an excellent source for further reading.

Book News Annotation:

The film industries of the two countries are treated in separate sections in this reference, which is intended as a resource for further research rather than an exhaustive encyclopedia or a record of all films. For each country, coverage includes a listing of acronyms and abbreviations, a chronology, an introduction, and a "dictionary," which consists of entries ranging from a paragraph to several pages (e.g. the entry for "masculinity" in Australia) on significant films and their personnel and relevant themes. The bibliography is extensive and is organized by subject. There is no index. Authors Moran ((Griffith University, Queensland) and Vieth (author of "Screening Science: Contexts, Texts and Science Fiction in Film") are both based in Australia but have extensive knowledge of New Zealand as well.
