COUNTRY FOCUS - VIETNAM
Vietnam cinema had gone through three major phases. Originated in 1920s the film of the country has been largely shaped by wars that have been fought in the country from 1940s to 1970a. With the end of the First Indochina War and the creation of North Vietnam and South Vietnam, there were two Vietnamese film industries, with the Hanoi industry focusing on propaganda films and Saigon producing mostly war-themed or comedy films. After Reunification of North Vietnam and South Vietnam, studios in the former South Vietnam turned to making Socialist Realism films. Films from the years following the war focused on heroic efforts in the revolution, human suffering created by the war and social problems of post-war reconstruction. In recent years, as Vietnam's film industry has modernized and moved beyond government-backed propaganda films, filmmakers have gained a wider audience.

AUSTRALIAN INDIGENOUS FILMS
Indigenous film either portrays Indigenous people, issues and stories or is film made by Indigenous Australians. While Indigenous film is a small part, it is a highly significant part of Australia's culture. The portrayal of Indigenous issues and people in film provides a unique insight into Australia's relationship with its Indigenous peoples and heritage. Indigenous film can also be a means of expression for Indigenous experience and Indigenous culture.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, issues and stories have often been stereotyped and marginalised in Australian society. Australia's film history paints a similar picture. However, there are films that portray Indigenous people as self conscious and aware and not as a mysterious or dangerous 'other'.

FILM ON ADOLESCENCE
There are certainly narrative conventions that help define teen film: the youthfulness of central characters; content usually centred on young heterosexuality, frequently with a romance plot; intense age-based peer relationships and conflict either within those relationships or with an older generation; the institutional management of adolescence by families, schools, and other institutions; and coming-of-age plots focused on motifs like virginity, graduation, and the makeover. Engaging with teen film as a genre means thinking about the certainties and questions concerning adolescence represented in these conventions, including the role of teen film in producing and disseminating them.
