Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether it was Jane Campion's The Piano, Mel Gibson in Mad Max, Paul Hogan in Crocodile Dundee, or The Lord of the Rings saga, we have all experienced the cinema of Australia and New Zealand. This book is an introduction and guide to the film of Australia and New Zealand. With entries on many exceptional producers, directors, writers and actors, as well as the films indicated above and many others, this reference also presents the early pioneers, 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:

Moran (author and educator) and Vieth (educator, film and communication writer) offer what is largely an encyclopedic reference on Australian and New Zealand cinema, from their relatively unimpressive early years to their more contemporary status as first-rate producers of quality cinema. Entries include directors and actors, writers and producers, the early industry pioneers, and the films themselves. A chronology and a detailed bibliography also are included. The book will interest film students as well as enthusiasts. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
