Item description for The Cinema of Feng Xiaogang: Commercialization and Censorship in Chinese Cinema After 1989 by Rui Zhang...
Focusing on Feng Xiaogang, this book explores Chinese film history since the early 1990s in terms of changes of party film policy, industry reforms, the party's promotion of Main Melody films and the emergence and growth of popular cinema. The image of Feng that will emerge in this book is that of a filmmaker working under political and economic pressures in a post-socialist state while still striving to create works with a personal socio-political agenda. In keeping with this reality, this book approaches Feng as a special kind of film auteur whose works must be interpreted with attention to the specific social and political context of contemporary China.
The extensive use of Chinese film market data and elaborate analysis of the Chinese film industry make this book a especially valuable.
