This unit is an exploration of Australian cinema with a particular focus on the dynamic relationship between screen culture and the changing patterns of Australian community, identity, and the fabric of everyday life. The unit especially considers how competing ideas of national identity are negotiated through the diverse practices and activities of Australian screen culture. In addition to engaging with these processes of contemporary Australian cinema, students will also look at filmmaking methods and techniques through chosen films.
