Summary

Building on and bringing up to date the material presented in the first installment of Directory of World Cinema: Australia and New Zealand,this volume continues the exploration of the cinema produced in Australia and New Zealand since the beginning of the twentieth century. Among the additions to this volume are in-depth treatments of the locations that feature prominently in the countries' cinema. Essays by leading critics and film scholars consider the significance of the outback and the beach in films, which are evoked as a liminal space in Long Weekendand a symbol of death in Heaven's Burning,among other films. Other contributions turn the spotlight on previously unexplored genres and key filmmakers, including Jane Campion, Rolf de Heer, Charles Chauvel, and Gillian Armstrong. Accompanying the critical essays in this volume are more than one hundred and fifty new film reviews, complemented by full-color film stills and significantly expanded references for further study. From The Pianoto Crocodile Dundee, Directory of World Cinema: Australia and New Zealand 2completes this comprehensive treatment of a consistently fascinating national cinema.
