Showcasing a variety of new and fascinating case studies from Britain, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Australia, and canvassing a range of formats including commercial co-productions, short films, documentaries and independent films, the book highlights the contemporary screen cultures of Chinese-language communities situated on the margins of China and Chineseness. It engages new sites of localisation, multilingualism and differences that have emerged in Chinese film studies, ones that are not easily contained by the notion of diaspora. The chapters cover a number of historical periods, geographical locations, and critical and methodological perspectives, such as the political economy of Sinophone film production, distribution, consumption and regulation; cinematic practices of Chinese and non-Chinese language resistance, complicity and transformation; and Sinophone communities as sites of cultural production and visual economies." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Contains list of figures and notes on Chinese names and film titles -- Includes filmography, bibliographic references and index ISBN: 9781137311191 Contents: Part 1: Theorising Sinophone cinemas -- Framing Sinophone cinemas / Audrey Yue and Olivia Khoo -- Genealogies of four critical paradigms in Chinese-language film studies / Sheldon H.
