AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This essay 'shows how Luhrmann's recent, controversial film provides insight into the experience of watching movies in segregated cinemas. This important essay brings together analysis of racial segregation as it is represented visually in Baz Luhrmann's Australia with the recollections of Aboriginal cinema-goers who experienced or observed segregation first-hand. In doing so, Nugent reminds us of the significance of 'non-realist' cinema images that can captivate audiences and at the same time represent the material conditions of cinema-watching.'
