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

The book moves from broad historical and theoretical context, particularly theories of nation, emergent discourses of "mexicanidad" and the establishment and development of the Mexican industry, towards readings of key film texts and genres. Individual chapters discuss the relationship between Hollywood cinema and Mexican cinema, the stars of the "Golden Age," the role of foreign auteurs in the founding of Mexican cinema, tensions in the industry in the 1960s, and the national and international reception of contemporary films and film-makers. The author then examines the portrayal of Mexican nationhood through critical analysis of film genres including Revolutionary films, machismo and "mexicanidad," the prostitute, and the work of female auteurs.

Theorising national cinema / Valentina Vitali and Paul Willemen (eds)

Call No: 408.1 THE Author: Vitali, Valentina; Willemen, Paul CorpAuthor: BFI Source: UK Place: London Publisher: British Film Institute, London PubDate: 2006 PhysDes: 326 p. ill. : 24 cm Subject: ASIAN COUNTRIES; NATIONAL CULTURE AND THE CINEMA; JAPAN; KOREA; REPUBLIC OF IRELAND; LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES; KRACAUER, SIEGFRIED; BURCH, NOEL; RUSSIA; FRANCE; TAIWAN; PALESTINE; ARAB COUNTRIES; INDIA; ASIAN COUNTRIES; EUROPEAN COUNTRIES; NATIONAL CULTURE AND THE CINEMA; NATIONAL CULTURE IN FILMS; NATIONAL IDENTITY AND THE CINEMA; NATIONAL IDENTITY IN FILMS; GLOBALISATION Summary: Why do we think of clusters of films as a 'national cinema'? 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.
