The Films of Peter Weir examines the Australian director's short films and feature productions since 1970. Analysis of the films is based on the identification and interpretation of recurrent meaning structures, and the tracing of stylistic and thematic continuities across the filmmaker's career. Weir has worked in Australia and Hollywood, and consideration of his films includes study of the circumstances of production, recognition of the contribution of the director's collaborators, and analysis of texts used as sources or allusions from literary and visual arts. Weir's less well known Australian films of the 1970s receive equal treatment alongside the high-profile productions such as Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975). The films are treated in chronological order, with chapters devoted to pairs of films linked in their timing and subject matter, such as Witness (1985) and The Mosquito Coast (1986), as well as to individual key works.
