Book Description

June 30, 2007 0773455116 978-0773455115
This book examines to the Chinese Cultural Revolution between 1966 and 1976, focusing mainly on the work of the so-called Fifth Generation filmmakers who experienced the Cultural Revolution first hand and produced movies about it. Attention is also given to films from Third, Fourth, and Sixth Generation directors. Asserting that fictional films can be seen as an agent enhancing our historical understanding, this study examines how such a theory of film might fit into a philosophy of history, while also seeking to find places where film and history intersect.

Editorial Reviews


"... Drawing on the more recent 'relativist' work of Hadyn White, [the authors] ably demonstrate how the intersection of history and cinema in the work of Chinese Fifth Generation filmmakers can be discussed in terms of the generic and narrative categories of tragedy, comedy, and irony." - Professor Phillip Gentile, University of Southern Mississippi"
