This introduction to the new Australian film industry explores prominent directors and stars, themes, styles, and evolving genres in an analysis of key films. The evolution of genres peculiar to Australia and adaptations of conventional Hollywood forms such as the musical and the road movie are examined through readings of landmark films, including ‘Picnic at hanging rock’, ‘Mad max’ trilogy, and ‘The adventures of Priscilla, queen of the desert’. The key issue of the revival – the definition, representation, and propagation of a national image – is woven through the analysis.
