Description: This course presents an overview of cinema in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong from the 1930s to the present, considering how cinema has served a means of representing and reshaping Chinese historical identities and everyday life at home and abroad. We will approach film as a mixed medium of narrative, image, and sound, and focus on how it represents the spectacle of modern China by mediating among recurring issues of modern (especially urban) life, the persistence of the past, the relations of place to Chinese and global culture, and the staging of these questions through issues of gender and ethnicity. Throughout, we will pay close attention to the interaction of themes, narrative genres (such as melodrama), formal techniques, and cultural and social context.
