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

Charting their emergence and subsequent development through five decades, New Zealand Film and Television: Institution, Industry and Cultural Change examines these two increasingly vibrant cultural and creative industries. Whilst there is a growing body of academic work on the film and television productions which have originated in New Zealand, relatively little exists that examines the specific cultural concerns, institutional objectives, policy directives, and industry practices that have shaped these productions. New Zealand Film and Television: Institution, Industry and Cultural Change aims to fill this gap."-BOOK BLURB Notes: includes glossary of Maori terms; includes bibliographical references; includes index ISBN: 9781841504575 Contents: -- List of Illustrations -- Acknowledgements -- Glossary of Maori Terms -- List of Abbreviations -- Introduction -- 1.

Our own image : A story of a Maori filmmaker / Barry Barclay
Minneapolis, MN: University of Minnesota Press, 2015.
Call No: 81 BAR BAR Author: Barclay, Barry Edition: 2015 Place: Minneapolis, MN Publisher: University of Minnesota Press PubDate: 2015 PhysDes: xiv, 100 : illus. ; 21 cm Subject: BARCLAY, BARRY; NGATI (NZ, Barry Barclay, 1987); MAORI CINEMA; NEW ZEALAND Notes: Acclaimed Maori filmmaker Barry Barclay’s Our Own Image relates the experiences of making his documentaries and his critically acclaimed feature-length film Ngati (1987), widely credited as the first fiction feature by a member of an indigenous community. Barclay details his views on the process of filmmaking within his own Maori community and discusses how his work differed from popular cinema, advocating for indigenous control, participation, and perspectives in media.
Our Own Image gives an in-depth depiction of the changes Barclay’s approach contributed to the field of documentaries, as well as displaying the respect for community Barclay brought to his filming technique. His insistence on letting people speak for themselves demonstrated authenticity to audiences, creating awareness of indigenous cinema in New Zealand and worldwide. -- publisher's blurb ISBN: 9780816697618 More info
Out from nowhere : Pakeha anxieties in Ngati (Barclay, 1987), Once were warriors (Tamahori, 1994) and Whale rider (Caro, 2002)
Studies in Australasian cinema (2009) vol.3 iss.3 p.239-250 Author: Joyce, Hester PhysDes: Article Subject: INDUSTRY, FILM. NEW ZEALAND; MAORI IN FILMS; NATIONAL CULTURE AND THE CINEMA. NEW ZEALAND; IMPERIALISM AND THE CINEMA; NGATI (NZ, Barry Barclay, 1987); ONCE WERE WARRIORS (NZ, Lee Tamahori, 1994); WHALE RIDER (NZ/GG, Niki Caro, 2002) Summary: This article explores the development of New Zealand cinema as one of unease, as reflective of the disintegration of the utopian dream inherent in the founding settler era. It examines three films from consecutive decades, Ngati (Barclay, 1987), Once Were Warriors (Tamahori, 1994) and Whale Rider (Caro, 2002), and compares representations of Maori as illustrative of Pakeha (white settler) anxieties about Maori/Pakeha relations. It argues that while Ngati and Once Were Warriors contain elements of postcolonial critique, Whale Rider returns to a model of segregation, invoking spirituality of Maori as nostalgia for a lost utopian past. -- Abstract More info
