A-Z Australian & NZ Cinema
LECTURE OUTLINE: 'Telling Our Stories: Images and Ideas in Three Waves of Australian Film'
presented by Dr. Karen Pearlman - Arts Society Lecturer.
Australian film captured the world's attention in the 1970s and early 80s with a series of beautifully shot period dramas such as Picnic at Hanging Rock and Breaker Morant. A decade later, Strictly Ballroom and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert painted Australia as rambunctious and gleefully spectacular. The distinctive work of Indigenous filmmakers has brought a new wave of attention. This lecture will look at these three 'waves' of Australian cinema.
