View: 9405International Film Festival (MIFF) is Australia’s most revered celebration of cinema. It is one of the world’s oldest and most storied film festivals, continuously running since 1952. MIFF’s 70th edition will include a specially curated program of films depicting the iconic and little-seMelbourneen moments where our city and our cinema meet. To commemorate this event, Black Inc. has partnered with the festival to produce an exciting collection of essays on select films from the program. Melbourne has a long, rich and diverse film history. It was the city where the first ever feature-length film was screened in 1906 – The Story of the Kelly Gang. It was also the birthplace of classics like Monkey Grip, Ghosts of the Civil Dead, The Castle and Mad Max, plus many fascinating shorts and experimental films. Melbourne on Film is both a celebration of filmmaking in Melbourne, and a tribute to the city’s unique creative history. The first collection of its kind, it includes personal reflections on the legacy and influence of these key films by some of the city’s favourite writers, including Christos Tsiolkas, Sarah Krasnostein, John Safran, Osman Faruqi, Tristen Harwood and Judith Lucy. Melbourne on Film will be treasured by cinephiles and readers of intelligent essays on arts and culture.

View: 5389Marauders from Mars War of the Worlds: Battleground Australia sheds fresh, Antipodean light on H.G. Wells' original tale in stories that traverse the southern continent. Home to the planet's longest-surviving mysteries, Australia now plays victim to marauding Martians in this outstanding collection of exciting stories set in the past, present and future. Australian Invasion It is well-known that Wells found vital inspiration for his 1897 novel in the horrific plight of Tasmanian Aboriginals who, within his lifetime, were virtually wiped out by the warfare and disease brought by foreign invaders. In Battleground Australia we discover that the war with Mars was not confined to England and did not end with all Martians destroyed by disease. In Australia some of the aliens survived and went underground, to emerge a century or more later. Best Science Fiction A Collection of Australia's best-selling literary, crime and speculative fiction writers including: Kerry Greenwood, Jack Dann, Carmel Bird, Jenny Valentish, Janeen Webb, Sean Williams, Kaaron Warren and Angela Meyer with a foreword by film director Alex Proyas (The Crow; I, Robot; Gods of Egypt)

View: 7282Everyone has an interest in housing, because we all live in some kind of home. While there has been plenty of theological reflection on the natural environment, there has been little on the built environment or on a theology of housing. Addressing the urgent problems of housing inequality and affordability, Coming Home proposes a practical and biblical theology of housing provision as an essential part of community building. It explores the purpose of home and housing today, housing and human flourishing, shared living and neighbourliness. It asks how and why the church should contribute to local and national housing policy – and thus to building community life – and offers case studies in community action. Contributors include Samuel Wells, Timothy Gorringe, Niamh Colbrook, Selina Stone, Angus Ritchie and Shermana Fletcher of the Centre for Theology and Community. Collectively, they bring theology and practice together.
