ASIA Summary: "This book explores the range and dynamism of contemporary Asian cinemas, covering East Asia (China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan), Southeast Asia (Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia), South Asia (Bollywood), and West Asia (Iran), in order to discover what is common about them and to engender a theory or concept of "Asian Cinema". It goes beyond existing work which provides a field survey of Asian cinema, probing more deeply into the field of Asian Cinema, arguing that Asian Cinema constitutes a separate pedagogical subject, and putting forward an alternative cinematic paradigm. The book covers "styles", including the works of classical Asian Cinema masters, and specific genres such as horror films, and Bollywood and Anime, two very popular modes of Asian Cinema; "spaces", including artistic use of space and perspective in Chinese cinema, geographic and personal space in Iranian cinema, the private "erotic space" of films from South Korea and Thailand, and the persistence of the family unit in the urban spaces of Asian big cities in many Asian films; and "concepts" such as Pan-Asianism, Orientalism, Nationalism and Third Cinema. The rise of Asian nations on the world stage has been coupled with a growing interest, both inside and outside Asia, of Asian culture, of which film is increasingly an indispensable component--this book provides a rich, insightful overview of what exactly constitutes Asian Cinema." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographic references and index; Includes filmography ISBN: 9781138815780 Contents: pt.

The Tartan guide to Asia extreme : An introduction to the astonishing world of cinema from the far east / Mark Pilkington / Jule Hartung (ed.)
Call No: 720(5) TAR Author: Mark Pilkington PubDate: 2004 PhysDes: 17 cm ; 58 p Subject: HORROR FILMS. HONG KONG; HORROR FILMS; ORIENTAL ACTION FILMS; CHINA; KOREA; JAPAN; TAIWAN; HONG KONG; GENRES; THAILAND Summary: With titles such as Hard Boiled, Kwaidan and Onibaba, Tartan delivered the best and most provocative cinema from the East. But when Ring and Audition were unleashed upon unsuspecting audiences nationwide it became apparent that the appetite for such outrageous fare was massive, and it made sense to let people know where to find it. Thus, Asia Extreme was born. Films such as Battle Royale and Infernal Affairs continue to satisfy the ever increasing hunger for astounding cinematic style and outrageous shock moments, while a swathe of even newer titles – like Oldboy and Koma – wait in the wings for their chance to leave audiences breathless. Now, it seems inconceivable that, once upon a time, Asia Extreme didn’t exist at all. Heres the story of the origin and development of the most exciting and unique of all contemporary genres.

Vampires and zombies : transcultural migrations and transnational interpretations / Edited by Dorothea Fischer-Hornung and Monika Mueller
Jackson: University Press of Mississippi, 2016.
Call No: 735.2 FIS Author: Fischer-Hornung, Dorothea; Mueller, Monika Edition: 2016 Place: Jackson Publisher: University Press of Mississippi PubDate: 2016 PhysDes: vi, 256 : illus. ; 24 cm Subject: VAMPIRE FILMS; ZOMBIES IN FILMS AND TV; MONSTERS IN FILMS; THAILAND; MEXICO; WORLD WAR Z (US/MT, Marc Forster, 2013); VAMPYR : DER TRAUM DES ALLEN GRAY (G/FR, Carl Th. Dreyer, 1932); VAMPIRO, EL (MX, Paul Nagle, 1959) Notes: The undead are very much alive in contemporary entertainment and lore. Indeed, vampires and zombies have garnered attention in print media, cinema, and on television. The vampire, with roots in medieval European folklore, and the zombie, with origins in Afro-Caribbean mythology, have both undergone significant transformations in global culture, proliferating as deviant representatives of the zeitgeist.
As this volume demonstrates, distribution of vampires and zombies across time and space has revealed these undead figures to carry multiple meanings. Of all monsters, vampires and zombies seem to be the most trendy--the most regularly incarnate of the undead and the monsters most frequently represented in the media and pop culture. Moreover, both figures have experienced radical reinterpretations. If in the past vampires were evil, blood-sucking exploiters and zombies were brainless victims, they now have metamorphosed into kinder and gentler blood-sucking vampires and crueler, more relentless, flesh-eating zombies. Although the portrayals of both vampires and zombies can be traced back to specific regions and predate mass media, the introduction of mass distribution through film and game technologies has significantly modified their depiction over time and in new environments. Among other topics, contributors discuss zombies in Thai films, vampire novels of Mexico, and undead avatars in horror videogames. This volume--with scholars from different national and cultural backgrounds--explores the transformations that the vampire and zombie figures undergo when they travel globally and through various media and cultures.
