This book is an attempt to chronicle the amazing rise of Chinese cinema since 2002 that has propelled what’s arguably the world’s fastest growing film industry — how it awoke from a decade-long hiatus; how it incorporated film industries from Hong Kong and Taiwan; how it deals with growing competition from Hollywood; and what roadblocks send it swerving as it hurtles toward modernization and globalization. The book highlights major industry players, dynamics and conflicts; types of movies and their places in the business; and fascinating tidbits that connect to the past and point to the future. It is a perfect primer for anyone interested in China’s film industry or with a desire for a deeper appreciation of Chinese-language movies.
