It looks at how the 1992 Mabo decision, which overruled the nation’s founding myth of terra nullius, has changed the meaning of landscape and identity in Australian films, including The Tracker, Rabbit-Proof Fence, Moulin Rouge, The Castle, Cunnamulla, Looking for Alibrandi and Japanese Story amongst many others.” (back cover) Notes: Index: p.200-204; Bibliography ISBN: 0521834805 :

The films discussed in textual depth transcend literal lost in the bush mythologies, or actual cases of displaced children, to focus on vulnerable children renderedlost through government and institutional practices, and adult/parental characters developmentally arrested by comforting or traumatic childhood memories. The victory/winning fixation governing the USA – diametrically opposed to the lost child motif – is also discussed as a comparative example of the mesmerising nature of the cultural complex. Examining iconic characters and events, such as the Gallipoli Campaign and Trump’s presidency, and films such as The Babadook, Lion, and Predestination, this book scrutinises the way in which a culture talks to itself, about itself. This analysis looks beyond the melancholy traditionally ascribed to the lost child, by arguing that the repetitive and prolific imagery that this theme stimulates, can be positive and inspiring.
The Lost Child Complex in Australian Film is a unique and compelling work which will be highly relevant for academics and students of Jungian and post-Jungian ideas, cultural studies, screen and media studies. It will also appeal to Jungian psychotherapists and analytical psychologists as well as readers with a broader interest in Australian history and politics. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9781138939691 More info

Rabbit-proof fence / Larissa Behrendt

Call No: 79RAB BEH Author: Behrendt, Larissa Source: AU Place: Strawberry Hills, N.S.W. Publisher: Currency Press Canberra National Film and Sound Archives PubDate: 2013 PhysDes: vii, 94 p. : ill., 1 map, ports. ; 19 cm. Series: Australian screen classics Subject: RABBIT-PROOF FENCE (AT, Phillip Noyce, 2001) Summary: This Australian Screen Classic is about the movie "Rabbit-Proof Fence" based on the book Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence by Doris Pilkington Garimara. The 2002 film, written by Christine Olsen and directed by Phillip Noyce, tells the story of Doris Pilkingtons mother, the then fourteen-year-old Molly Craig, her sister Daisy, aged eight, and cousin Gracie, aged eleven, who were all forcibly removed from their families at Jigalong in the Pilbara region of Western Australia in 1931. Taken to the Moore River Native Settlement, a mission on the western Australian coast some 2000 kilometres from home, they were to be trained as domestic servants. Desperately home sick, Molly, Daisy and Gracie escaped, and following the rabbit-proof fence, they walked thousands of kilometres across desert back home, all the while being stalked by the authorities. In this honest and frank account Eualeyai and Kamillaroi woman, academic and award-winning author Larissa Behrendt finds much about this story that resonates: the need and desire to find ones home, ones sense of place, ones sense of self. This is undoubtedly a universal quest but for Aboriginal people taken from their families, as these children were, that search for home, that need to feel complete, is all the more powerful.

AUSTRALIA; AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES IN FILMS; POLITICS AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; DOYLE, CHRISTOPHER; RABBIT-PROOF FENCE (AT, Phillip Noyce, 2001) Summary: Indigenous Australian and Asian Australian dialogues are still emerging in Australian cinema. This article will examine how Asian Australian cultural politics offer alternative accounts of indigenous-settler relations that are not reduced to a black and white discourse. A politics of cultural hybridity disrupts dominant modes of representation by revealing the fluidity and artifice of prevailing cultural boundaries. I expand on the critical framework of a ‘third space’ through Christopher Doyle's Rabbit-Proof Fence photo collages. While his subject matter is taken from the film's mode of production through his role as cinematographer, Doyle's interaction through collage and his Asian film background enables a hybrid engagement with indigenous cultural representations. -- Abstract Notes: Part of Special Issue: Transnational Asian Australian Cinema.

AUSTRALIA Summary: Over the last decade popular cinema has employed a variety of forms of music. These include traditional composed screen music, pre-recorded music tracks, mixes of music and sound effects and various combinations of these. In response to this, film music scholars have developed new ways of understanding and analysing the role of film music in relation to genre, narrative and creative roles and inter-relations in film music scoring. 'Reel Tracks' provides a series of insightful analyses of recent mainstream Australian cinema. Following the editor's careful exploration of film music's relation to national cinema culture and identity, individual chapters offer stimulating and diverse accounts of music in films such as Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002), Lantana (2001), Chopper (2000) and Paradise Road (1997). The chapters in this volume also address broader themes such as the musical representation of sexuality in cinema and music's representation of regions, localities and ethnicity. Reel Tracks is an important contribution to both Australian film studies and the international understanding of the role of music in contemporary western cinema. This volume is targeted to both cinema studies readers and film music students, teachers and aficionados.

Understanding sound tracks through film theory / by Elsie Walker

Walker includes sustained analyses of particular films according to a range of theoretical approaches: psychoanalysis, feminism, genre studies, post-colonialism, and queer theory. The films come from disparate temporal and industrial contexts: from Classical Hollywood Gothic melodrama (Rebecca) to contemporary, critically-acclaimed science fiction (Gravity). Along with sound tracks from canonical American films including The Searchers and To Have and Have Not, Walker analyzes independent Australasian films: examples include Heavenly Creatures, a New Zealand film that uses music to empower its queer female protagonists; and Ten Canoes, the first Australian feature film with a script entirely in Aboriginal languages. Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory thus not only calls new attention to the significance of sound tracks, but also focuses on the sonic power of characters representing those whose voices have all too often been drowned out.
Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory is both rigorous and accessible to all students and scholars with a grasp of cinematic and musical structures. Moreover, the book brings together film studies, musicology, history, politics, and culture and therefore resonates across the liberal arts." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references, filmography (page 419) and index; Includes filmography ISBN: 9780199896325 Donation: Oxford University Press Contents: -- acknowledgments -- general introduction -- pt.
