With this book, I record, evidence and bring to the attention of interested people unknown stories in the entertaining business in Australia and New Zealand.

A history of Greek cinema / Vrasidas Karales
New York: Continuum, 2012.
Call No: 71(495) KAR Author: Karales, Vrasidas Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Continuum PubDate: 2012 PhysDes: xxiii, 318 p. : ill. ; 23 cm Subject: GREECE; HISTORY OF CINEMA; HISTORY OF CINEMA. GREECE Summary: "The history of Greek cinema is a rather obsure and unexamined affair. Greek cinema started slowly and then collapsed, for several years it struggled to reinvent itself, produced its first mature works, then collapsed completely and almost vanished. Because of such a complex historical trajectory no comprehensive survey of the development of Greek cinema has been written in English. This book is the first to explore its development and the contexts that defined it by focusing on its main films, personalities and theoretical discussions.
A History of Greek Cinema focuses on the early decades of the form and filmmakers' attempts to establish a 'national' cinema useful to social cohesion and national identity. It also analyses the problems and dilemma many directors faced in establishing a distinctly Greek cinematic language and presents the various stages of Greek cinema's development against the backdrop of the country's turbulent political history. The book combines historical analysis and discussions about cinematic form to construct a narrative history of Greek cinematic successes and failures" -- BOOK BLURB ISBN: 9871441194473 Contents: Introduction to Greek cinema -- Early Greek cinema (1905-1945) -- Constructing a visual language (1945-1960) -- Glory and demise (1960-1970) -- The formalist moment: the inward gaze and the new Greek cinema (1970-1981) -- The new decade: hope and disenchantment (1981-1994) -- The polyphony of the decentred gaze: the other as cultural hero (1995-2010) -- Recapitulation More info
Independent filmmaking around the Globe / edited by Doris Baltruschat and Mary P. Erickson

Call No: 210.4 IND Author: Baltruschat, Doris (ed.); Erickson, Mary P. (ed.) Source: US Place: Toronto Publisher: University of Toronto Press PubDate: c2015 PhysDes: xii, 313 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm. Subject: FILMMAKING; INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS; INDEPENDENT FILMS; INDEPENDENT PRODUCTION; INDEPENDENT DIRECTORS; DIRECTORS; PRODUCERS; CRITICISM; EUROPEAN CINEMA; BRITISH CINEMA; UNITED KINGDOM; AUSTRALIA; PERU; GREECE; TURKEY; IRAQ; CHINA; AFRICA; MALAYSIA; CANADA; USA Summary: "Independent Filmmaking around the Globe calls attention to the significant changes taking place in independent cinema today, as new production and distribution technology and shifting social dynamics make it easier for independent filmmakers to produce films outside both the mainstream global film industry and their own national film systems. Identifying and analyzing the many complex forces that shape the production and distribution of feature films, the authors detail how independent filmmakers create work that reflects independent voices and challenges political, economic, and cultural constraints.
With chapters on the under-explored cinemas of Greece, Turkey, Iraq, China, Malaysia, Peru, and West Africa, as well as traditional production centres such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia, Independent Filmmaking around the Globe explores how contemporary independent filmmaking increasingly defines the global cinema of our time." -- TAKEN FROM FIRST PAGE OF BOOK Notes: Includes bibliographical references and filmography ISBN: 9781442626836 Donation: Senses of Cinema Contents: -- foreword: producing independently in global industry / David Hamilton -- ackowledgments -- 1.The Meaning of Independence: Concepts, Contexts, and Interpretations / Mary P.

World film locations : Athens / edited by Anna Poupou, Afroditi Nikolaidou and Eirini Sifaki

Call No: 756(495) WOR Source: UK Place: Bristol, U.K. ; Chicago, USA Publisher: Intellect Books PubDate: 2014 PhysDes: 128 pages : col. ill., col. maps ; 23 cm Series: World film locations Subject: GREECE; CITIES IN FILMS; WORLD CINEMA; LOCATION SHOOTING Summary: "A filmic guidebook of the Greek capital. World Film Locations: Athens takes readers to film locations in the central historical district with excursions to the periphery of Athens--popular neighbourhoods, poor suburbs, and slums often represented in postwar neorealist films--and then on to garden cities and upper class suburbs, especially those preferred by the auteurs of the 1970s. Of course, no Grecian vacation would be complete without a visit to the sea, and summer resorts, hotels, and beaches near Athens are frequent backdrops for international productions. However, more recent economic strife has emptied city neigbourhoods, created urban violence, and caused an increase in riots in the Mediterranean city, and representations of this on film are juxtaposed with images of the eternal and idyllic city. Featuring both Greek and foreign productions from various genres and historical periods, World Film Locations: Athens ultimately works to establish connections between the various aethetics of dominant representations of Athens." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographic references and index; Includes filmography; Includes recommended further reading ISBN: 9781783203598 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema, 2014 Contents: Maps/Scenes -- Scenes 1-8: 1924-1956 -- Scenes 9-16: 1956-1966 -- Scenes 17-24: 1968-1984 -- Scenes 25-32: 1982-2003 -- Scenes 33-39: 2005-2010 -- Scenes 40-46: 2011-2014 -- Essays -- Athens: City of the Imagination / Anna Poupou and Eirini Sifaki -- Open-air Cinemas in Post-war Athens / Dimitris Eleftheriotis -- Athens in Burning / Dimitris Papanikolaou -- Nikos Panayotopoulous's Athens: From Relic of Antiquity to Hipster Urban Refuge / Athena Kartalou -- Controversies of Space in Popular Greek Cinema (1950-70)" From the Courtyard to the Living Room / Angeliki Milonaki -- Dirtopia and Its Urban Subcultures: Cinematic Athens in the Post-dictatorship Era / Afroditi Nikolaidou and Anna Poupou -- Athens in the 1960s Greek Musical / Lydia Papadimitriou More info
