Reinventing China (Hardcover)
A Generation and Its Films
Paul Clark
The Chinese University Press

A pioneering study of the genesis and films of the fifth-generation of Chinese filmmakers who emerged in the 1980s with films of startling originality. The making and meanings of films such as Judou, Raise the Red Lantern, Farewell My Concubine are the central focus. Through this generation and its films changes in Chinese society over several decades are brought into vivid relief. Clark draws on interviews with directors, including Zhang Yimou, Chen Kaige and Tian Zhuangzhuang, as well as less well-known figures.

Paul Clark is Professor of Chinese at the School of Asian Studies, The University of Auckland, New Zealand. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University and is a path-breaker in the study of Chinese film with his Chinese Cinema: Culture and Politics since 1949. This present book brings up to date and extends that earlier work, offering insight into changes in Chinese society and culture since the 1960s. He is currently completing a cultural history of the Cultural Revolution and has a project on Chinese youth culture, 1968–2008.
