Far more than the first major study of a supposedly "minor" cinema too long unexplored, Transnational Australian Cinema is a thought adventure of exceptional brilliance and daring. The "strong transnationalism" of its field-expanding method not only brings us rich historical discoveries but also creates new ways of thinking representation together with policy, viewership with social governance, ethnic identities with resource allocation, and film forms with production ecologies. This book redefines the field of national cinema studies and in the process it expands the capacities of film history to illuminate the great debates of our time. -- Meaghan Morris, Professor of Gender and Cultural Studies, University of Sydney
Transnational Australian Cinema: Ethics in the Asian Diasporas is a welcome addition to scholarship on both Australian and transnational cinema. It makes significant and new arguments about the changing representation of Asia and Asian subjects in Australian cinema, and it proposes a useful approach to these subjects that allows them to be viewed in new ways. It will be of great interest not only to students and scholars of Australian and transnational cinema, but also to those in Australian studies, and particularly in Asian studies. -- Ben Goldsmith, Queensland University of Technology
