Syllabus

This unit looks at an Australian national cinema rather than a national film industry. The emphasis will be on identifying the concerns, interests and ideologies embedded and embodied in Australian films made as a response to the concerns and interest of a nation. Through screenings and analysis of specific films from the last 100 years of Australian cinema, this unit plots the concerns of a nation, dealing with issues of identity, mateship, the larrikin, post colonialism, assimilation and multiculturalism.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Critically analyse screen theory in regards to Australian National Cinema and present ideas verbally in a presentation;

2. Respond creatively, via a creative practice, to the film screenings and theory presented in this unit, including the work of specific filmmakers, cinematographers, screenwriters, musicians and/or designers; and

3. Reflect on your own creative practice and where it sits within the theory of Australian National Cinema and notions of identity, culture and ideology.
