Hogan, 2003); GREAT GATSBY, THE (US/AT, Baz Luhrman, 2013) Summary: "This edited collection assesses the complex historical and contemporary relationships between US and Australian cinema by tapping directly into discussions of national cinema, transnationalism and global Hollywood. While most equivalent studies aim to define national cinema as independent from or in competition with Hollywood, this collection explores a more porous set of relationships through the varied production, distribution and exhibition associations between Australia and the US. To explore this idea, the book investigates the influence that Australia has had on US cinema through the exportation of its stars, directors and other production personnel to Hollywood, while also charting the sustained influence of US cinema on Australia over the last hundred years. It takes two key points in time—the 1920s and 1930s and the last twenty years—to explore how particular patterns of localism, nationalism, colonialism, transnationalism and globalisation have shaped its course over the last century. The contributors re-examine the concept and definition of Australian cinema in regard to a range of local, international and global practices and trends that blur neat categorisations of national cinema. Although this concentration on US production, or influence, is particularly acute in relation to developments such as the opening of international film studios in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and the Gold Coast over the last thirty years, the book also examines a range of Hollywood financed and/or conceived films shot in Australia since the 1920s." -- BOOK BACK COVER Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9783319666754 Donation: Stephen Gaunson Contents: -- 1 Where I'm Calling From: An American-Australian Cinema? / Peter C Kunze -- pt I Across the Pacific: Looking to America -- 2 Rudimentary Modernism: Ken G Hall, Rear-Projection and 1930s Hollywood / Adrian Danks -- 3 Simulated Scenery: Travel Cinema, Special Effects and For the Term of His Natural Life / Leslie DeLassus -- 4 Representations and Hybridizations in First Nation Cinema: Change and Newness by Fusion / Jane Mills -- 5 Of Mothers and Madwomen: Mining the Emotional Terrain of Toni Collette's Anti-Star Persona / Fincina Hopgood -- pt II The View From There: Australian Films in the US -- 6 Accented Relations: Mad Max on US Screens / Tessa Dwyer -- 7 Talking Trash with Tarantino: Auteurism, Aesthetics and Authority in Not Quite Hollywood / Peter C Kunze -- 8 Australian Horror Movies and the American Market / Mark David Ryan -- 9 The Terrible Terrace: Australian Gothic Reimagined and the (Inner) Suburban Horror of The Babadook / Amanda Howell -- pt III Here and There: Crossing Between Australian, US and International Cinemas -- 10 American Cartel: Block Bookings and the Paramount Plan / Stephen Gaunson -- 11 The Multiplex Era / Jock Given -- 12 "Zest to the jaded movie palate": Wallace Worsley, Scott R Dunlap and The Romance of Runnibede / Jeannette Delamoir -- 13 Defining Neverland: P J Hogan, J M Barrie and Peter Pan in Post-Mabo Australia / Jerod Ra'Del Hollyfield -- 14 Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby Telling a National Iconic Story Through a Transnational Lens / Lesley Hawkes -- index -- More info

Go! Melbourne : Melbourne in the sixties
Melbourne, Australia: Circa, 2005.
Call No: 12(94) GOM Author: O'Hanlon, Seamus (ed.); Luckins, Tanja (ed.); Danks, Adrian Place: Melbourne, Australia Publisher: Circa PubDate: 2005 PhysDes: 21 cm ; 284 pp Subject: SOCIETIES, FILM. AUSTRALIA. VICTORIA Summary: What were the 1960s really like in Melbourne? Was it just great music, brightly coloured clothes and The Pill? Or was there something deeper and perhaps more insidious happening? This fab new book takes a close look at the many cultural changes of the Sixties and how they affected the Victorian capital - and questions modern-day views about the way times actually did 'a' change'. Go! Melbourne in the Sixties covers defining moments like the visit of The Beatles, the end of the six o'clock closing, political activism, Jean Shrimpton at Flemington, as well as increases in tertiary study opportunities, dramatic population growth through migration and a baby-boom, and sets them in the context of a decade that many continue to see as a golden era. [Taken from back cover] Of particular relevance here is Adrian Danks' chapter on the Melbourne University Film Society (MUFS) entitled "Arrested Developments or from 'The Heroes are Tired' to 'The Tomb of Ligeia': Some Notes on the Place of the Melbourne University Film Society in 1960s Film Culture" which traces the origins of the film society, its contribution to Melbourne cultural life, its output (not just in exhibition but production and publishing) and its legacy.
