Celluloid Dreams: a Century of Film in New Zealand
by G.B. Churchman

ISBN: 9780908876969
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 144
DIMENSIONS: 286mmX210mm

This book was published in 1997 to provide the history of the first 100 years of motion picture production and exhibition in New Zealand. The first part of the book traces the development of cinema shows in the country from the earliest flickering, jerky silents in makeshift premises, through the grandeur of the 1920s picture palaces, to today's sophisticated multiplexes; examines the careers of notable impressarios and entrepreneurs; and looks at the controversy of film censorship since the 1910s. The second part of the book covers filmmaking in New Zealand since the end of the 19th century - the various types of productions by independents, government and television, challenges that filmmakers have faced, pioneers and standout figures in the industry, and the notable films that have been made. An appendix provides a filmography of New Zealand feature films from 1940 through 1996. Thoroughly researched and illustrated with over 140 excellent photos, 36 in colour, this book is a key reference to New Zealand cinema and films.
