HIS290 Upfront: History of Film in Australia


From The Story of the Ned Kelly Gang and The Sentimental Bloke to Bran Nue Dae and The Water Diviner, this course explores Australian film within the changing contexts of history, audience, industry structure, and technology, from the silent era to the present. By employing techniques of both historical analysis and screen studies, the course aims to give a broad grasp of the way film reflects Australian society and history. You will develop analytical skills in, and theoretical comprehension of, film history and filmic techniques which influenced that history, over the duration of the course.
