Diasporas of Australian Cinema
The first volume to focus exclusively on diasporic hybridity and cultural diversity in Australian filmmaking over the past century.

Published by Intellect Ltd., 2009

Diasporas of Australian Cinema is the first volume to focus exclusively on diasporic hybridity and cultural diversity in Australian filmmaking over the past century.

Topics include post-war documentaries and migration, Asian-Australian subjectivity, cross-cultural romance, “wogsploitation” comedy, and post-ethnic cinema. This collection also provides a useful reference text for scholars of Australian film and cultural studies, with material on contemporary film-making and pre-World War II cinema. Containing previously unpublished articles by some the most recognised experts on Australian cinema, the book is a vital contribution to the burgeoning international interest in diasporic cinemas.
