It displays the rich diversity of film production in the country, and in doing so highlights a number of specific contexts - Maori, documentary and short filmmaking, literary adaptations, the development of the national Film Commission and Archive, marketing and censorship, in addition to explorations into the place of bicultural relations, spirituality, masculinity and disability - that have created a cinema of global significance. Featuring critical accounts of internationally-acclaimed features like The Piano and Once Were Warriors, as well as the growth of the national infrastructure that made such films possible, Contemporary New Zealand Cinema is the most thorough study available of a vibrant filmmaking culture. The book also includes a fully comprehensive filmography detailing all New Zealand feature and television films."--BOOK JACKET Notes: Filmography: p.-253

She interviewed seventy-six people - from Peter Jackson to fan webmasters to producers of the video games to directors of the DVD supplements to tour operators in New Zealand, among many others. She spent weeks on site while the third part of the trilogy was being finished - the ultimate inside vantage point - and the resulting book captures the full dimensions of the struggle to get Rings to the screen."
"Thompson examines the movie's scripting and design as well as the new technologies deployed to produce the films and the all-important videogames and DVDs. She recounts how Jackson, then a little-known director with no hits to his credit, made the startling suggestion of shooting all three epic parts of J. R. R.Tolkien's classic simultaneously and how Jackson then, in realizing his vision, enormously expanded a few small companies into a world-class filmmaking complex. She profiles the fans whose websites provided the film with a wealth of free publicity. Thompson's own enthusiasm - she is a longtime devotee of the novels - and her expertise as a respected film historian underlie her discussion of the impact Rings has had on the companies that made the film and its related products, on the fantasy genre, on New Zealand, and, surprisingly, on independent cinema."--BOOK JACKET.
