Common Ground: Australian co-productions with China

A key Australian film industry trend over the past decade is the move toward co-productions with China. Screen Australia’s 2013 'Common Ground' report into screen partnerships in Asia highlighted Australia’s intention to develop co-production relationships in the region. Its support of Arclight Films’ Chinalight company in the 2017 round of the Enterprise program funding, gave this intention a physical, development and production company presence that made the hope clear that a stronger relationship with China, its industry and film market was the primary goal. Dr Dave Hare examines the recently-closed Chinalight as a case study that reflects the ways Australia is approaching the China-Australia production relationship. He is joined by Kai Ruo Soh to chat about the various political, cultural and financial implications of this relationship, with the audience present on the day. Seminar: 0.00 - 40min Q & A: 40min - 1hr 30min Produced by the Sydney Screen Studies Network Visit our website: sydneyscreenstudies.wordpress.com Email us: sydneyscreenstudies@gmail.com

Common Ground: Australian co-productions with China

Through an Indigenous Lens

Throughout Australia’s television history, Indigenous people have faced considerable misrepresentation in both their characterization and absence from our screens. Graduate student and actress Josie Atkinson looks at three key case studies: Boney (1971-2; 1992) Neighbours (1985-), and The Secret Life of Us (2001-5), revealing that while problems still exist in the representation of Indigenous people in televised media dramas, there have been some groundbreaking developments in this facet of Australian media. Josie is joined by Evelyn Araluen Corr for a Q&A session, where they discuss the issues facing Indigenous actors/actresses, gender representation, and the presence and absence of Indigenous-specific and Indigenous non-specific characterization in Australian television. Seminar: 0.00 - 14min Q & A: 14min - 1hr 02min Produced by the Sydney Screen Studies Network Visit our website: sydneyscreenstudies.wordpress.com Email us: sydneyscreenstudies@gmail.com

A Good Man with a Gun

"The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun". These are words spoken by NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre. Film scholar Dr Rodney Wallis argues this statement has a peculiar resonance with the mythic ideal of an armed saviour in American culture. He explores how Hollywood has contributed to this ideal through the 1950s Western, particularly focusing on George Steven's 1953 movie Shane. He is joined by Ben Eldridge for a Q&A session, in which they chat about heroism, masculinity, gun culture, race and gender in the Western genre. Seminar: 0.00 - 16min Q & A: 16min - 1hr 02min Produced by the Sydney Screen Studies Network Visit our website: sydneyscreenstudies.wordpress.com Email us: sydneyscreenstudies@gmail.com
