During the course of his twenty-odd-year filmmaking career, Peter Weir has accomplished what so many of his protagonists have failed to do: he has become an accepted, integral part of an unfamiliar culture. At the core of most of his films and at the least peripheral to all of them is the idea of the outsider trying - and ultimately failing - to come to terms with a culture vastly different from his own. Weir, a native of Australia whose name was synonymous with Australian cinema in the 1970s, turned to American filmmaking in the 1980s and never looked back. In Peter Weir: When Cultures Collide, Marek Haltof traces Weir's journey from intensely Australian filmmaker to successful Hollywood director, along the way finding surprisingly consistent evidence of Weir's thematic and visual interests despite dramatic changes in his choices of story and locale.

What happens when cultures clash? Big Bang or Hiroshima? Karaya's innocent accounts betray a hidden secret: she's not that innocent. Savage tells the stories of the mixed race, half Taino, half Spanish narrator in 15th Century Haiti, whose father chopped off her mother's hands. From the unfortunate circumstances of her birth, to the murder of her mother, at the hands of her own brother, Karaya's stories are as intriguing as they are discomforting.Savage explores the ironies and subjectiveness of history, notions and assumptions about identity, placement and displacement within imagined class and power structures.
