活動概覽:

Beginning with Red Sorghum in 1987, films directed by the well-known filmmaker Zhang Yimou have been both admired and reviled. Shying away from a focus on the specificities of Chinese culture per se, the films instead assess the workings of culture within themes of performance under coercion, the duplicity of display, and action under constraint. These filmic topos are interwoven with attention to the formation of subjectivity: how gazing and being gazed upon alters ethics and affect, and how the mind and behavior are formed under duress. Concerns about power and sovereignty, as well as “modernizing” forces in post-socialist China, also figure prominently. The films contribute not only to an in-depth understanding of transformation in a rapidly changing China, but also to a broader creative field that examines the relationship between the nation-state and culture under the developing conditions of globalization.
