ML 340 - China through Film

(3.00 cr.)

Explores Chinese culture through award-winning movies recently produced in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and other Chinese-speaking communities. Lectures and discussions focus on the representations of Chinese history, family, and society and further examine how the Chinese identity is constructed in these movies. Aesthetic styles and cinematic themes are also investigated. Meanwhile, the shifting dynamics between China and the West propose more critical questions on Chinese film as entertainment and its commercialization in an age of globalization. No prior knowledge of Chinese history, culture, film, or the Chinese language is required. Taught in English.
