The Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies invites you to the launch of Associate Professor Arezou Zalipour’s book ‘Migrant and Diasporic Film and Filmmaking in New Zealand’
This book is the first ever collection on diasporic screen production and practice in New Zealand. Through contributions by a diverse range of local and international scholars, it identifies the central characteristics, histories, practices and trajectories of screen media made by and/or about migrant and diasporic peoples in New Zealand, including Asians, Pacific Islanders and other communities. It calls for more diversity on New Zealand Screens and addresses issues pertinent to representation of migrant and diasporic life and experience on screen, and showcases critical dialogues with directors, scriptwriters, producers and other key figures whose work reflects experiences of migration, diaspora and multiculturalism in contemporary New Zealand.
