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

Exception taken : how France has defied Hollywood's new world order / Jonathan Buchsbaum
New York: Columbia University Press, 2017.
Call No: 205.1(44) BUC Author: Buchsbaum, Jonathan Place: New York Publisher: Columbia University Press PubDate: 2017 PhysDes: xxvii, 393 pages : illustrations, charts ; 23 cm Series: Film and Culture series Subject: FRANCE; GOVERNMENT AID; GLOBALISATION; Canal Plus; EUROPEAN COUNTRIES Summary: "In Exception Taken, Jonathan Buchsbaum examines the movements that have emerged in opposition to the homogenizing force of Hollywood in global filmmaking. While European cinema was entering a steady decline in the 1980s, France sought to strengthen support for its film industry under the new Mitterrand government. Over the following decades, the country lobbied partners in the European Economic Community to design strategies to protect the audiovisual industries and to resist cultural free-trade pressures in international trade agreements. These struggles to preserve the autonomy of national artistic prerogatives emboldened many countries to question the benefits of accelerated globalization.
Led by the energetic minister of culture Jack Lang, France initiated a series of measures to support all sectors of the film industry. Lang introduced laws mandating that state and private television invest in the film industry, effectively replacing the revenue lost from a shrinking theatrical audience for French films. With the formation of the European Union in 1992, Europe passed a new treaty (Maastricht) that extended its legal purview to culture for the first time, setting up the dramatic confrontation over the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT) in 1993. Pushed by France, the EU fought the United States over the idea that countries should preserve their right to regulate cultural activity as they saw fit. France and Canada then initiated a campaign to protect cultural diversity within UNESCO that led to the passage of the Convention on Cultural Diversity in 2005. As France pursued these efforts to protect cultural diversity beyond its borders, it also articulated "a certain idea of cinema" that did not simply defend a narrow vision of national cinema. France promoted both commercial cinema and art cinema, disproving announcements of the death of cinema."

UK; HOLLYWOOD; TYPE CHARACTERS IN FILMS Summary: Journeys of Desire offers for the first time a comprehensive critical guide to European Actors in American film, bringing together 15 overview chapters and a-z entries on over 900 individuals in one accessible and scholarly volume. Since the early days of the US film industry, European actors have consistently been a major force in Hollywood. Screen idols such as Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Charles Boyer, Audrey Hepburn, Maurice Chevalier, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Antonio Banderas, as well as scores of more modest players, have profoundly shaped ‘American’ cinema. They have also contributed to the propagation of European types and stereotypes such as the ‘Russian’ and Nordic queens played by Garbo and Dietrich, the French Roues popularized by Chevalier, the fiery Latinos depicted by Banderas and the British arch-villain played by Steven Berkoff, Anthony Hopkins and Tim Roth. Films such as Casablanca (1942), Gigi (1958), Green Card (1990) and Vanilla Sky (2001), among many others, would not be the same without them. Contributions from a team of 70 international experts provide ground-breaking case studies of prominent individuals and phenomena associated with the émigrés, such as the retired Russian officers who played crowds in silent films, the stereotyping of European actresses in ‘bad women’ roles, and the ultimate irony of Jewish actors playing Nazis. Individual entries chart the careers and performances of the European actors – from Victoria Abril to Mai Zetterling – who appeared in American movies. [Taken from back cover].

Arguing that becoming modern happens differently in different places, the contributors examine popular culture – most notably cinema and television – to see how modernization, as both a response to the West and a process that is unique in its own right in the region, operates on a mass level. Included in this collection are significant explorations of popular culture in East Asia, including Chinese new cinema and rock music, Korean cinema, and Taiwanese television, as well as discussions of alternative arts in general. While each essay focuses on specific nations or cinemas, the collective effect of reading them is to offer a comprehensive, in-depth picture of how popular culture in East Asia operates to both generate and reflect the immense change this significant region of the world is undergoing.

Why has the relationship between the nation and film become so widely and uncritically accepted? Theorising National Cinema is a major contribution to work on national cinemas, by many of the leading scholars in the filed. It addresses the knotty and complex relationships between cinema and national identity, showing that the nationality of a cinema production company, and of the films it made, have not always been seen as pertinent. The volume begins by reviewing and rethinking the concept of national cinema in an age of globalisation, and it goes on to chart the parallel developments of national film industries and the idea of the nation state in countries as diverse as Japan, South Korea, Russia, France and Italy. The issue of a 'national cinema' for nation states of contested status, with disputed borders or displaced peoples, is discussed in relation to film-making in Taiwan, Ireland and Palestine. The contributors also consider the future of national cinema in an age of transnational cultural flows, exploring issues of national identity and cinema in Latin America, Asia, the Middle-East, India, Africa and Europe.

INDIA; SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE (UK/US, Danny Boyle and Loveleen Tandan, 2008) Summary: "This volume brings together perspectives on Indian popular cinema, universally known as Bollywood now, from different disciplinary and geographical locations to look afresh at national cinemas. It shows how Bollywood cinema has always crossed borders and boundaries: from the British Malaya, Fiji, Guyana, Trinidad, Mauritius, and East and South Africa to the former USSR, West Asia, the UK, the USA, Canada, and Australia. While looking at the meanings of nation, diaspora, home, and identity in cinematic texts and contexts, the essays also examine how localities are produced in the new global process by broadly addressing nationalism, regionalism, and transnationalism, politics, and aesthetics, as well as spectatorship and viewing contexts." -- BOOK JACKET Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references ISBN: 0198075987; 9780198075981 Contents: pt. 1 Modernity, Globalization, Globality -- 1.Bollywood, Postcolonial Transformation, and Modernity / Bill Ashcroft -- 2.Cultural Flows, Travelling Shows: Bombay Talkies, Global Times / Makarand Paranjape -- 3.Mustard Fields, Exotic Tropes, and Travels through Meandering Pathways: Reframing the Yash Raj Trajectory / Madhuja Mukherjee -- pt. 2 Love Across the Border -- 4.The Lahore Film Industry: A Historical Sketch / Ishtiaq Ahmed -- 5.From Chandigarh to Vancouver: Reimagining Home and Identity in the Films of Harbhajan Mann / Nicola Mooney -- 6.Bollywood, Tollywood, Dollywood: Re-visiting Cross-border Flows and the Beat of the 1970s in the Context of Globalization / Anuradha Ghosh 7.

Source: US/UK Place: New York Publisher: Routledge PubDate: c2010 PhysDes: xv, 368 p. : 23 cm Subject: NATIONAL CULTURE AND THE CINEMA; GLOBALISATION; WORLD CINEMA Summary: "The standard analytical category of "national cinema" has increasingly been called into question by the category of the "transnational". This anthology examines the premises and consequences of the coexistance of these two categories and the parameters of historiographical approaches that cross the borders of nation-states. The three sections of World Cinemas, Transnational Perspectives cover the geopolitical imaginary, transnational cinematic institutions, and the uneven flow of words and images.
