SCRN20013 Australian Film and Television
Hands down the best subject I’ve ever done. Di Sandars is the most enthusiastic academic at this University and her love for films is infectious. The subject is heavy on unpacking the masculinity of everything (but what B Arts subject/part of life isn’t?), as well as a pop culture insight to contemporary Australian psyche and identity. Low point: watching Nigella Talks Dirty in class as mandated by Di. High point: Di getting away with making Nigella Talks Dirty apply to academic theory. If you love movies, Guy Pearce, Priscilla Queen of the Desert or Australia (the country) and hate Australia (the movie), breadth subjects that require effort or rote learning, then this is the subject for you!
