BBC – David Stratton’s Stories of Australian Cinema (2020) 2of3

BBC Stories of Australian Cinema 2of3

Film critic David Stratton tells the fascinating story of Australian cinema and how the country’s film-makers have to helped to shape a nation’s idea of itself.

Part 1:
This episode sees how Aussie film-makers gained the confidence to tell their own stories with the boldness of Picnic at Hanging Rock and Mad Max, the global success of Crocodile Dundee and Shine, the flamboyance of Strictly Ballroom and the raw authenticity of Samson and Delilah.

Part 2:
How Australian cinema celebrates the endurance of outsiders, whether they are newcomers to a strange new land in They’re a Weird Mob and Wake in Fright, or locals out of step with the mainstream in Evil Angels, Muriel’s Wedding and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

Part 3:
How variations on the theme of family are depicted in Australian movie-making The Castle’s nuclear, if unorthodox family, a family of faith in The Devil’s Playground, Romper Stomper’s frightening Neo-Nazis and crime families such as those depicted in Ned Kelly and Animal Kingdom.
