Books Info:

New Zealand Journal of Media Studies free pdf Taika Waititi's film Boy (2010) is the number one New Zealand film of all time. In this special issue of the New Zealand Journal of Media Studies, 11 scholars, activists, students, writers and film-makers discuss why the comedy-drama, set in a rural community on the East Coast of the North Island in 1984, has become our best-selling film. Through Boy, they reflect on the current state of representations of the MAori world, MAori screen production, and the relationship between MAori popular culture, New Zealand national culture and the more global forces that help shape contemporary media. A wide range of issues are addressed here: the extent of Waititi's creative risk taking, Poi E and kapa haka, New Zealand in the 80s, the role of fantasy in Boy, howA MAori and Indigenous creative artists manage stereotypes, the reappearance of Shogun on the DVD commentary, and how taniwha guide our movie viewing experience in this country. This publication is both a celebration and critique of the film Boy, and a thoughtful consideration of MAori film, Aotearoa New Zealand cinema, media more
generally and, of course, Michael Jackson.
