About this item

This edited volume is the first English-language book that brings together a team of international scholars to investigate the latest cinematic trends in the fast-growing film industries of Hong Kong and Bollywood. A team of esteemed academics examine the transmission, reception, and reproduction of new cinematic styles, meanings, practices, and norms in 21st-century Asia. Considering the latest trends towards transnationalism and translatability in cinemas of these regions, contributors rethink the longstanding paradigm of national cinema and reveals how Hong Kong and Bollywood have moved beyond the traditional focus on nationalism, urbanity, and biculturalism to reposition themselves as new cultural forces in the pantheon of global cinema.
