ASPA 389 Contemporary Chinese Cinema


3 semester hours

This course provides an introduction to contemporary Chinese cinema. It focuses not only on the “poetics of cinema” (cinematic language, styles, and aesthetics) but also the “politics of cinema” that emphasize contemporary Chinese cinema’s engaging dialogue with Chinese history and its critical intervention into key socio-political issues facing post-Mao China. It concerns itself with such issues relating to history and memory, modernity, and nationhood; family, gender, and sexuality; urbanization, migration, and transnational formations; and Hong Kong and Taiwan identities.
