A History of the New Zealand Fiction Feature Film is the only comprehensive account of the New Zealand feature film from its beginnings to the present. Countering tendencies to think of New Zealand film as beginning in the 1970s, Bruce Babington discloses a longer saga showing how the present, for all its difference, can only be understood through the past. The book manages the feat of providing a reference map of the cinema, its genres, and its preoccupations, while at the same time giving fascinating detailed analysis of important texts. A History of the New Zealand Fiction Feature Film is essential reading for all students and followers of New Zealand cinema as well as those interested in the local post-colonial culture and its products.
