Transnational and Transgressive Motives in the Works of Peter Weir”] (2017). In the first Polish monograph devoted to Peter Weir, the authors propose a holistic reading of the Australian director’s achievements through the prism of a diverse character of the struggle with what is different, foreign, incomprehensible present in his films. In the review of the book, Karolina Kostyra develops the authors’ observations, providing further arguments Kempna-Pieniążek and Pieniążek proposed approach to Weir as a director struggling with cultural difference and perceiving in phenomena, that from the perspective of Western view may appear as irrational, their proper rationality, not depriving the analysed films of the incompleteness and secrets contained in them.
