Contributions by: Haina Jin

Film and Television Culture in China gives a provocative analysis of film and television culture in China. The author first gives a panoramic picture of Chinese culture in which film and television was born and shaped. He then delineates the definition, composition, and basic relations in film and television culture. Also discussed are the two traditions in Chinese film and television culture-the worldly spirit and the poetic style. The two traditions are deeply rooted in Chinese Confucianism and Taoism, and have influenced Chinese film and television from the start. The author provides in-depth and original readings of the phenomena in Chinese film and television culture, such as: the reform films and the reflection films, the character and mission of television documentary, and a dialogue between the mainland and Taiwan. Film and Television Culture in China will be an essential guide to understand the film and television culture in China, from early screen to the present day.
