EAST 125 - Hong Kong Cinema

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
This course surveys Hong Kong cinema from the post-war period to the present. We explore the themes, styles, genres, directors, the star system, and audiences of films and discuss how Hong Kong cinema, as one of the largest and most dynamic motion picture industries in the world, expresses the region’s complex, hybrid, and fluid cultural identity in the context of coloniality, globalization, and transnationalism. We also investigate the interactions between the Hong Kong film industries, Hollywood, and other East Asian regions.
This course is cross-listed with CINE 125


This course is appropriate for new students.
