This work – along with 2018’s fiftieth anniversary of the events of May 1968 – provides an occasion for reflection upon the usefulness of film and television practice and scholarship, and offers twin points of reference for the Second Biennial Conference of the Screen Studies Association of Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand (SSAAANZ).
