This study is divided into two parts and locates the (postmodern) Gothic in twelve Australian/New Zealand films ranging from Ted Kotcheffs Wake in Fright (1971) to Peter Jacksons Heavenly Creatures (1994). Part one theorizes the Gothic as a subversive cultural mode that foreshadows postmodernism in terms of its antithetical relationship with Enlightenment ideals. Interconnections are made between proto-postmodern aspects of early Gothic literature and the appropriation and intensification of these aspects in what has been dubbed the postmodern Gothic. The dissertation then argues that the Antipodes was/is constructed through Euro-centric discourse(s) as a Gothic/(proto)-postmodern space or place, this construction manifest in, and becoming intertwined with the postmodern in post 1970s Antipodean cinema. In part two, a cross-section of Australian/New Zealand films is organized into cinematic sub-genres in line with their similar thematic preoccupations and settings, all films argued as reflecting a marked postmodern Gothic sensibility. In its conclusion, the study finds that S2Antipodean Gothic cinemaS3, particularly since the 1970s, can be strongly characterized by its combining of Gothic/postmodernist modes of representation, this convergence constitutive of a postmodernized version of the Gothic which is heavily influenced by Euro-centric constructions of the Antipodes in Gothic/(proto)-postmodern related terms.

AUSTRALIA; SENTIMENTAL BLOKE, THE (AT, Raymond Longford, 1919); NIGHT THE PROWLER, THE (AT, Jim Sharman, 1978) Summary: Almost from the inception of movies, the Buckley family were involved, so it was natural for the young Tony Buckley to get a job at a film laboratory, and move into film editing. Despite being warned by a veteran of film, "There's no future in it", Buckley began a career that was to involve a cast of thousands including Australian film pioneers, Raymond Longford and Ken G. Hall, Australian and international stars, and the pick of the Australian film and television industry. As an acclaimed editor, then producer, Tony Buckley's films have attracted numerous accolades and awards. In Behind a Velvet Light Trap, Buckley chronicles the frequent disasters on the set and the antics of actors and film crew with wry humour and a firm sense of professionalism. It is an insider's view of Australian movies and television where we get to meet some of the vivid personalities including Rudolf Nureyev, Michael Powell, Patrick White, James Mason, Ruth Park, Leo McKern and Joan Sutherland. --BOOK JACKET ISBN: 9781740667906 Contents: -- Preface -- Acknowledgement -- PART ONE -- 1 -- Saturdays At The Sesqui -- 2 --The Sentimental Bloke - Meeting Raymond Longford -- 3 -- Discovering 'The Hidden Power' -- 4 -- The Voice Of Australia -- 5 -- 'There's No Future In It, Son!' -- 6 -- Seven Miles From Sydney And 10,000 Miles From Care -- 7 -- Letters Home: 189 Cromwell Road - 'Hurry, My Milliner Is Waiting!' -- 8 -- Five For Europe: A Telegram From Home -- 9 -- Another Cinesound Excusive! -- 10 -- Forgotten Cinema And The Australian Renaissance -- 11-- Michael Powell and S.Y.M -- 12 -- Home to Avening -- 13 -- 'The Locomotive that Drives Everything Else -- 14 -- Mercer Clips and Hollywood -- 15 -- Le Reveil Dans La Terreur - Wake in Fright -- 16 -- Ballet in the Bedroom -- 17 -- Insular Fairyland - anyone for Croquet? -- 18 -- ...'You wanna make a film about a woman???!!' -- 19 -- My Sons, My Horses - The Anatomy of a Motion Picture -- 20 -- 'This Bizarre Work' - The Night of the Prowler -- 21 -- The very strange case of the Unknown Industrial Prisoner -- 22 -- Not In The Public Interest - the Juanita Factor -- 23 -- Flight Ten From Honolulu - A complete Change Of Direction -- 24 -- A Landmark Australian Film -- PART TWO -- 25 -- ...And Now For Something Completely Different - Television! -- 26 -- The Tree Of Humankind - Man On A Limb! -- 27 -- The Heroes Of The Miniseries -- 28 -- Prostitution - Adapting Bryce Courtenay - And The Mysterious Case Of The Stolen Logie -- PART THREE -- 29 -- Back To The Reel World -- 30 -- On Their Selection - The $24,000 Lunch! -- 31 -- A Celebration - Then Shadows Fall -- 32 -- 'That Resilient Little Beast' - But Not Quite A Heart Stopper! -- 33 -- An Apple For The Teacher - Food for thought -- 34 -- Shattered Dreams - Broken Promises -- The Final Reel - The Full Circle More info
