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.
