China on Film : A Century of Exploration, Confrontation, and Controversy Paperback / softback
Leading scholar Paul G. Pickowicz traces the dynamic history of Chinese filmmaking and its stunning development decade-by-decade since the 1920s.
During the last one hundred years, China has been embroiled in a seemingly unending series of wars, revolutions, and jarring social transformations.
Despite daunting censorship obstacles, Chinese filmmakers have found ingenious ways of taking political stands and weighing in-for better or worse-on the most explosive social, cultural, and economic issues of the day.
Exploring the often gut-wrenching controversies generated by their work, Pickowicz offers a unique and perceptive window on Chinese culture and society.
