Among the additions to this volume are in-depth treatments of the locations that feature prominently in the countries' cinema. Essays by leading critics and film scholars consider the significance of films of the outback and the beach, which is evoked as a liminal space in Long Weekend and a symbol of death in Heaven's Burning, among other films. Other contributions turn the spotlight on previously unexplored genres and key filmmakers, including Jane Campion, Rolf de Heer, Charles Chauvel, and Gillian Armstrong. Accompany the critical essays in this volume are more than 60 film reviews, complemented by full-colour film stills and significantly expanded references for further study.

Remembering our ancestors : cross-cultural collaboration and the mediation of Aboriginal culture and history in Ten canoes (Rolf de Heer, 2006)
Studies in Australasian cinema (2007) vol.1 iss.1 p.5-14 Author: Davis, Therese PhysDes: Article Subject: AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES AND THE CINEMA; AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES IN FILMS; AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL CINEMA; INDIGENOUS PEOPLE'S CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; GULPILIL, DAVID; DE HEER, ROLF; TEN CANOES (AT, Rolf De Heer, 2006) Summary: In 2000, maverick Australian director Rolf de Heer began a collaboration with Australian Aboriginal screen legend David Gulpilil to make a film set in Gulpilil's traditional lands in North Eastern Arnhem Land. The result of the collaboration is the new feature Ten canoes (2006). For Culpilil the project represented an opportunity to launch careers in film for members of his community including his son Jamie Gulpilil (who plays the lead role). He has also stated that ' the film will allow people from the community and around the world to know how our ancestors lived and to understand them'. In order to try to achieve this, de Heer took on the challenging task he describes as 'fusing two very different storytelling traditions'. Drawing on the documentary Balanda and the bark canoes (2006) (also known as Making ten canoes) and other sources this article goes behind the scenes to examine processes of cross-cultural collaboration and intercultural fusion. It argues the film shows that while stories have different forms and functions in different societies, one story can be made to serve two different cultural requirements and, further, in doing so can expand possibilities for both cross-cultural recognition and cinema.-- Abstract More info

With the advent of digital technologies, however, many Indigenous peoples are working to redress the imbalance in numbers and counter the negativity.
The contributors to Reverse Shots offer a unique scholarly perspective on current work in the world of Indigenous film and media. Chapters focus primarily on Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and cover areas as diverse as the use of digital technology in the creation of Aboriginal art, the healing effects of Native humour in First Nations documentaries, and the representation of the pre-colonial in films from Australia, Canada, and Norway.
