Selling Scandinavia at the Ends of the Earth

Nordic Silent Film in Australasia

Abstract:


Film is an important vector for the transmission of culture around the world. This article investigates how the circulation of Nordic silent film in Australia before and after World War I illustrates the global movement of Nordic culture and explores how this cultural transmission may have shaped international conceptions about Scandinavia in a time of intense geopolitical tension and economic competition.
