Staunch as?

Bruce Babington

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first single volume to investigate the history of film in New Zealand
  • Looks at the very beginning of the NZ film industry, in the early years of the twentieth century, rather than concentrating on the renaissance in the 1970s
  • Covers all of the major directors, who have had international success, including Geoff Murphy, Roger Donaldson, Lee Tamahori, Jane Campion, Vincent Ward and Peter Jackson
  • A fascinating insight into a national cinema which is now globally successful
