Chinese Film Theory: A Guide to the New Era

Synopsis

This is the first collection of translations of Chinese film theory to be published in English. By using translations rather than summaries as other works have done, Chinese Film Theory provides readers with an introduction to the issues current in China's film circles. It includes 18 essays written by a broad range of writers--from well established scholars to young people at the beginnings of their involvement in film in China. This collection indicates a trend away from the study of external qualities of film and toward a study of the film itself.
