China's Cinema of Class : Audiences and Narratives (Hardcover) (Nicole Talmacs)
about this item
This book is about film narratives and audiences, and how they relate to the dynamism of class formation taking place on the periphery of what is typically discussed and examined by scholars of Chinese cinema and society. China’s commercial film industry can be used as a map to understand how class is interwoven into the imaginations that inform and influence social change in Chinese society. Film consumption is important in this process, particularly for young adult urbanites that are China’s primary commercial cinema patrons.
