Sample text

However, in this era when some forces in both China and the West seem determined to construct a confrontation between two separate “civilizations,” we hope this contribution to the arena of transnational film studies can constitute a step, however small, in the opposite direction. As we move into 16 INTR ODU CTION: CINEMA AN D T H E N AT IO N A L a new century when global economics, politics, and war demand new ways of imagining community, we believe that Chinese cinemas, which have always been transnational and challenge conventional understandings of the national in so many ways, will take an ever more central position both in global popular culture and in scholarship around the world.

Most writing on cinema opposes historical representations of real events like the documentary or mock-documentary footage in In the Mood for Love to fictional narratives of the past like the rest of the film. History is what happened, and analysis of historical films emphasizes questions of accuracy— is it really fact or just fiction? Our approach is different in two ways. First, we emphasize the narrative quality of all stories about the past, no matter how grounded in fact. In the next section, we do not ask about accuracy.

Therefore, places that have the most evidently complex relation to the national are likely to emerge as privileged sites of analysis now. Many people would agree that few places have a more complex relation to the national than the combination constituted by the People’s Republic, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Chinese diaspora. Therefore, Chinese cinemas can emerge as key sites in the intellectual shift to cinema and the national, and also be part of the urgently needed attack on Eurocentrism in English-language film studies as that field also becomes transnational.
