Coming-of-Age Cinema in New Zealand

Genre, Gender and Adaptation

Alistair Fox

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Traditions in World Cinema

This is the first book to investigate the coming-of-age genre as a significant phenomenon in New Zealand's national cinema, tracing its development and elucidating its role in cultural change. With chapters on landmark films like An Angel at My Table, Heavenly Creatures, Once Were Warriors and Boy, this book explores the influence of the French New Wave and European art cinema, and examines the dialogue between national cinema and a nation's literature.
