Review of Migrant and Diasporic Filmmaking, edited by Arezou Zalipour
Migrant and Diasporic Film and Filmmaking in New Zealand, edited by Arezou Zalipour. Singapore: Springer Nature, 2019. 209 pages. ISBN 9789811313783.
IF PEOPLE think about diasporic cinema in New Zealand, they probably think about comedies like Sione’s Wedding or Curry Munchers or web series like Flat3. What they all have in common is an attempt to portray different aspects of a particular diasporic community’s life from the inside. Some films have been more successful than others; some exist only online or at film festivals.
