This subject responds to the growing body of work produced by contemporary Indigenous artists who use photography, computer-generated new media and film to engage audiences and address issues. It introduces students to the history of representation of Indigenous peoples in Australia by presenting an overview of the key events, issues, innovations and international comparisons, combined with contemporary case studies. The realities of filmmaking and television production are explored through an examination of funding, access and policy issues. How are Indigenous film, television and new media fostered? What techniques and devices are employed in their promotion and distribution? Finally, engaging with practitioners and industry professionals will provide students with valuable insight into current developments in the field.
