Cinema of Unease
Part of the British Film Institute’s Century of Cinema series in which some of the world’s most respected directors investigate their national cinema.
Sam Neill weaves autobiographical detail throughout this analysis of New Zealand’s cinema history. Cinema of Unease examines the cultural and historic context from which the New Zealand film industry grew, and explores the emergence of a national cinematic style. While obviously dated by the fact it was made almost thirty years ago, Sam Neill’s observations are still compelling.
