Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Sixteen international academics examine the cinematic traditions of mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the Chinese diaspora from the beginning of Chinese film history to the present. Seventeen essays are organized into three sections on the diachronic issues of film history, periodization, and trends; the synchronic questions of poetics, aesthetics, form, and directorial style; and the politics of filmmaking and film reception, contemporary cultural studies, and issues of identity, gender, the national, the transnational, the postcolonial, and globalization. For students and specialists in film studies and fields dealing with nationalism, globalization, multiculturalism and related areas, this academic text is also accessible to the general reader.

Synopsis:

This volume, the most comprehensive work to date on Chinese film, explores the manifold dimensions of the subject and high-lights areas overlooked in previous studies. Leading scholars take up issues and topics covering the entire range of Chinese cinema. Their cross-cultural engagements with individual films, accomplished with an acute sense of chronology and history, tackle questions of issues related to historiography, poetics, aesthetics, genres, and directorial styles; at the same time, they address the economics of film production and consumption as well as the cultural politics of globalization, identity, subjectivity, nationality, citizenship, and gender formation as embodied in filmic texts.
