Abstract

This article provides an introduction to the Australian-German research project Antipodean Visions of Transcultural Societies, which is investigating the filmic representation of transcultural social conditions in Germany and Australia. The dual focus is on contemporary Turkish-German films, and on films either directed by indigenous people of Australia, or else treating indigenous issues. The analytical potential of the project is demonstrated by a comparative analysis of Rachel Perkins’ film Radiance (Australia 1997) and Kutlug Ataman’s Lola and Billy the Kid (Germany 1998).
