From the Back Cover

A Companion to Chinese Cinema features a collection of original readings that offer a comprehensive overview of the evolution and current state of Chinese cinema. Essays consider Chinese cinema  from a variety of historical and geo-political centers—Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Taiwan—and offer a critical examination of major accomplishments of Chinese film studies in various categories—film history and geography, industry and institution, media and arts, genre and representation, issues and debates.

This collaborative project brings together specialists across a range of disciplines to consider Chinese cinema from a variety of methodological approaches and theoretical frameworks.  This interdisciplinary approach allows for an unprecedented breadth of innovative ideas that facilitate a better understanding of Chinese cinema as it relates to artistic projects, social practices, political institutions, and expanding international markets. A Companion to Chinese Cinema offers an important analysis of a growing force in international cinema.
