CINE 251 - New Zealand Film

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
An overview of New Zealand film, tracing the development of a national cinema in New Zealand by analyzing the cinematic and cultural significance of key films and asking the question: How does film project a sense of national identity? We will begin by examining some of the abiding myths and images used to define New Zealand cinema, and then explore the representation of race and gender in key examples of contemporary New Zealand film ultimately focusing on how New Zealand cinema attempts to reconcile the commercial imperatives of the international market with the cultural demands of the national audience.
