AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"Making Film and Television Histories" approaches film and television texts as primary historical media with the potential to bring historical topics alive through their interplay between past and present. It is a major text, the first to situate in a clear historical context selected New Zealand and Australian films and television programs ranging from highly successful films such as "Gallipoli", "The Piano", "Australia", "Once Were Warriors" and "Heavenly Creatures" to less well-known texts that form the basis for intriguing examinations of history, representation and identity. This book is designed for all those with an interest in Australian or New Zealand history, film or television, and is written by leading scholars in these interdisciplinary fields, as well as filmmakers involved in the production of some of the films and TV shows discussed. With ten thematically structured sections and covering over 40 film and tv texts in clear and focused chapters, "Making Film and Television Histories" will be of particular value to teachers and trainee teachers wishing to inspire students to engage with history by putting to use audiovisual media in the classroom.'
