About this Unit
In 2013, this unit replaced by 101987 - Post Colonial Australian Cinema. This unit will examine the role of cinema in forming images of national and cultural identity. The unit will study approaches in film theory to national cinemas, and will explore the development of indigenous and postcolonial cinemas. The unit will discuss political debates and issues in national cinemas, and will raise questions about the nature of memory as it is mediated by cinematic experience, the representation of history, and the history of representation of indigenous cultures and peoples. The unit will introduce these questions and examine them within the framework of a case study of one national or postcolonial cinema.
