Product Description

1979 marked the beginning of a new wave of proactive film creation in China, with the rise to stardom, one after another in less than a decade, of the famed “Fourth-Generation” and “Fifth-Generation” film directors. Since then, Chinese film has expanded and developed, both in terms of artistic style and in closer scrutiny of the lives and cultural scope depicted. This has created a prospect of unprecedented wealth and prosperity.

Over the past three decades, the Chinese film industry has yielded fruitful and positive results as regards concepts and artistic merits. Chinese film has won worldwide acclaim for its critical depiction of historical and cultural aspects of China. The films highlighted in this book will, by virtue of their contrasting approaches, give readers a composite image of China and a deeper insight into the Chinese people, as both continue to evolve.
