Such a holistic evaluation allows for a better understanding of both the genesis of a special kind of film art from the People’s Republic of China and the culture exemplified in those films.

 

The fifteen films include: Two Stage Sisters; Hibis­cus Town; Farewell My Concubine; Street Angel; Three Women; Human, Woman, Demon; Judou; Girl from Hunan; Sacrificed Youth; Horse Thief; Yellow Earth; Old Well; Red Sorghum; Black Cannon Incident; and Good Morning, Beijing.

 

Discussions of each film have an introduction, passages from the director’s own notes whenever available, and a scholarly article. Discussion ques­tions are found in an appendix. Within its complete bibliography, the book also features a suggested read­ing list for Chinese film classes.
