His knowledge and understanding of textual analysis, postcolonial theory, reception studies, cultural studies, gender studies, history, film history, literature and archival work is breathtaking, curiously providing for the flow of ideas without hemming in the discussion with the canon of theoretical approaches. Instead, Limbrick shows us how to think of films from the classical period as international commodities, and demonstrates the necessity of combining textual, archival, and ethnographic research in our studies of the cinema. After Making Settler Cinemas, we no longer can consider American cinema, or British, or that of any other country simply in national terms.

This book uncovers for the first time routes taken by film directors, crews and texts across empires, settler colonies and indigenous populations, making it a must-read for those interested in colonial and transnational cinemas, media industry, global indigenous media, reception and ethnographic studies. In 2016 his The Cinema of Sean Penn: In and Out of Place was published by Wallflower Press. As the camera pans right, however, a building comes into view, along with a fence that separates the small outpost from the desert beyond. Cooper's The Four Feathers, the Australian Westerns produced by Britain's Ealing Studios, and British and American films made in New Zealand. Beautifully researched and lucidly written, this book has the benefit of being both timely and also enduring as an historical analysis of a nexus of crucial, formative encounters, whose influence on politics and culture continue to be felt today. In particular, Australian and New Zealand film studies can look to this book as a model for fashioning a singular research project that, at once, satisfies the demand for intriguing methodologies involving local fields of research, at the same time that the publishing impetus is always Northward. After reading Limbrick on the production and screening of The Seekers among the Maori in New Zealand, it will be impossible to look at American Westerns in the same way.

After reading Limbrick on the production and screening ofThe Seekersamong the Maori in New Zealand, it will be impossible to look at American Westerns in the same way. But his book also reveals the possibilities for resisting and reconfiguring those colonial histories through the ongoing work of film archives, indigenous exhibition and guardianship, and even in the labor of film history itself. One of the works, Matisse, was originally in French, so Monteagudo and Romano both fluent French speakers worked painstakingly alongside Limbrick to superimpose English subtitles on the existing French titles, while also re-timing them to match the original Arabic soundtrack. Instead, Limbrick shows us how to think of films from the classical period as international commodities, and demonstrates the necessity of combining textual, archival, and ethnographic research in our studies of the cinema. Making Settler Cultures is refreshing and lively, providing a substantial model for cross-cultural film studies.

Investigating films both canonical and overlooked,Making Settler Cinemasnot only shows how cinema has mattered to settler societies but affirms that practices of film history can themselves be instrumental in encountering and reshaping colonial pasts. Subjectivity finds its filmic expression, not surprisingly, in very personal ways, yet it is nonetheless shaped by and in relation to collective expressions of identity that can transform the cinema of 'me' into the cinema of 'we'. It's been great to help create a public dialogue like that while I write my book about his work. Limbrick's innovative study not only brings overdue attention to the specificities of settler colonialism and its encounters with indigenous and imperial cultural forces but offers a rich tool box for revisiting those films hitherto narrowly understood under the banner of the national.

Limbrick's innovative study not only brings overdue attention to the specificities of settler colonialism and its encounters with indigenous and imperial cultural forces but offers a rich tool box for revisiting those films hitherto narrowly understood under the banner of the national. Film and Digital Media undergraduates, Alejandra Monteagudo and Dominic Romano, produced new digital subtitles and exported them to new Blu-ray versions. In Making Settler Cinemas, Peter Limbrick argues that the United States, Australia, and New Zealand share histories of colonial encounters that have shaped their cinemas in distinctive ways. Drawing together archival materials, close textual analysis and discussions of contemporary exhibition practices, Limbrick presents a range of voices and practices that dramatize the multiple, conflicting and charged encounters between indigenes, settlers and transnational cultural producers.
