Chinese Cinema and Society

This course is to help students evaluate, both politically and aesthetically, the way contemporary Chinese films convey their social and cultural values and commitments. Given the belief in film’s historical and social significance, it is the particular purpose of this course to look at Chinese films since the 1980s and 1990s to the present and analyze how they perceived and conjured up the social and cultural landscape. It will also look at some of the major political events and social and cultural trends that dominated a decade and left a mark on its films. May meet either the Critical Perspectives: Global Cultures or Social Inequality requirement. Meets the Equity and Power: EPG requirement. (Not offered 2022-23).
