about this item

Perhaps no art form in China has engendered as much controversy or has had such a checkered past as film. From the horrors of war to the red carpet at Cannes, the history of Chinese film has illustrated the extremes of politics and art in a delicate dance that has captivated the attention of art and film historians for decades.  Ding Yaping's authoritative, accessible, and concise history of Chinese cinema comprehensively covers the early years of pro-China propaganda films through the first decade of the twenty-first century, where Chinese film now represents a cinematic movement of the highest order. Ding traces the development of Chinese film as a source of high culture from the 1990s to the present day.
