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
Muslim women in French cinema : voices of Maghrebi migrants in France / Leslie Kealhofer-Kemp

Call No: 451-054(=927)(44) KEA Author: Kealhofer-Kemp, Leslie Source: UK Place: Liverpool Publisher: Liverpool University Press PubDate: 2015 PhysDes: xii, 226 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm Series: Contemporary French and francophone cultures ; 41 Subject: FRANCE; FRANCE IN FILMS; WOMEN IN FILMS; RELIGION AND THE CINEMA; TRANSNATIONALISM AND THE CINEMA; DOCUMENTARY FILMS Summary: "Muslim Women in French Cinema: Voices of Maghrebi Migrants in France is the first comprehensive study of cinematic representations of first-generation Muslim women from the Maghreb (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia) in France. Women of this generation migrated to France during the decades preceding and following the end of French colonial rule, and they are generally - though not always accurately - regarded as belonging to a generation of migrants silenced under the weight of poverty, illiteracy, Islamic tradition, and majority ethnic Islamophobia. Situated at the intersection of post-colonial studies, gender studies, and film studies, this book brings together a diverse corpus of over 60 documentaries, short films, telefilms (made-for-television films), and feature films released in France between 1979 and 2014, and it devotes one chapter to each kind of film. In examining the ways in which the voices, experiences, and points of view of Maghrebi migrant women in France are represented and communicated through a selection of key films, this study offers new perspectives on Maghrebi migrant women in France. It shows that women of this generation, as they are represented in these films, are far more diverse and often more empowered than has generally been thought. The films examined in this study are part of larger contemporary debates and discussions relating to immigration, integration, and what it means to be French." -- LIBRARIES AUSTRALIA Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781781381984 Contents: -- list of illustrations -- acknowledgments -- introduction: Maghrebi migrant women in France and French cinema -- 1: The Voices of Maghrebi Women in Documentary Films: Framing Construction and Transparency -- 2: First-Generation Women in Short Films: Crossing Barriers and Communicating Experiences through Objects -- 3: The Voices of Maghrebi Migrant Women in French Telefilms: Portraying Agency -- 4: Transmitting the Voices of Maghrebi Women through Feature Films: From Verbal to Non-Verbal Forms of Communication -- conclusion -- appendix -- notes -- bibliography index -- More info

Showcasing a variety of new and fascinating case studies from Britain, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Australia, and canvassing a range of formats including commercial co-productions, short films, documentaries and independent films, the book highlights the contemporary screen cultures of Chinese-language communities situated on the margins of China and Chineseness. It engages new sites of localisation, multilingualism and differences that have emerged in Chinese film studies, ones that are not easily contained by the notion of diaspora. The chapters cover a number of historical periods, geographical locations, and critical and methodological perspectives, such as the political economy of Sinophone film production, distribution, consumption and regulation; cinematic practices of Chinese and non-Chinese language resistance, complicity and transformation; and Sinophone communities as sites of cultural production and visual economies." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Contains list of figures and notes on Chinese names and film titles -- Includes filmography, bibliographic references and index ISBN: 9781137311191 Contents: Part 1: Theorising Sinophone cinemas -- Framing Sinophone cinemas / Audrey Yue and Olivia Khoo -- Genealogies of four critical paradigms in Chinese-language film studies / Sheldon H.
