This study is divided into two parts and locates the (postmodern) Gothic in twelve Australian/New Zealand films ranging from Ted Kotcheffs Wake in Fright (1971) to Peter Jacksons Heavenly Creatures (1994). Part one theorizes the Gothic as a subversive cultural mode that foreshadows postmodernism in terms of its antithetical relationship with Enlightenment ideals. Interconnections are made between proto-postmodern aspects of early Gothic literature and the appropriation and intensification of these aspects in what has been dubbed the postmodern Gothic. The dissertation then argues that the Antipodes was/is constructed through Euro-centric discourse(s) as a Gothic/(proto)-postmodern space or place, this construction manifest in, and becoming intertwined with the postmodern in post 1970s Antipodean cinema. In part two, a cross-section of Australian/New Zealand films is organized into cinematic sub-genres in line with their similar thematic preoccupations and settings, all films argued as reflecting a marked postmodern Gothic sensibility. In its conclusion, the study finds that S2Antipodean Gothic cinemaS3, particularly since the 1970s, can be strongly characterized by its combining of Gothic/postmodernist modes of representation, this convergence constitutive of a postmodernized version of the Gothic which is heavily influenced by Euro-centric constructions of the Antipodes in Gothic/(proto)-postmodern related terms.

Urban Australia and post-punk : exploring Dogs in Space / edited by David Nichols and Sophie Perillo
Singapore: Palgrave Macmillan, 2020.
Call No: 79 DOG URB Author: Nichols, David; Perillo, Sophie Edition: 2020 Place: Singapore Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan PubDate: 2020 PhysDes: xviii, 338 pages : illustrated ; 22 cm Subject: DOGS IN SPACE (AT, Richard Lowenstein, 1986); MUSIC AND THE CINEMA; ARCHITECTURE AND THE CINEMA Summary: Richard Lowenstein’s 1986 masterpiece Dogs in Space was and remains controversial, divisive, compelling and inspirational. Made less than a decade after the events it is based on, using many of the people involved in those events as actors, the film explored Melbourne’s ‘postpunk’ counterculture of share houses, drugs and decadence. Amongst its ensemble cast was Michael Hutchence, one of the biggest music stars of the period, in his acting debut.
This book is a collection of essays exploring the place, period and legacy of Dogs in Space, by people who were there or who have been affected by this remarkable film. The writers are musicians, actors and artists and also academics in heritage, history, urban planning, gender studies, geography, performance and music. This is an invaluable resource for anyone passionate about Australian film, society, culture, history, heritage, music and art. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9789813297012 Contents: Introduction - Perillo, Sophie -- If You Were a Freak, You Were Equally Excluded -- Sejavka, Sam - It Was Filmic -- Farnan, Peter - I Was In-Between Two Worlds -- Clifforth, John - The B-Side of a Single?
