Course Description

Film theory follows cinephilia. Long canonized by film festivals and cherished by cinephiles, the 'new cinemas' from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the People’s Republic of China continue to revise our taste and assumptions of what is cinema: long takes and slow motions reanimated; relationship between mise-en-scene and realism rearticulated; links between film and politics redirected; connection between film style and directors reaffirmed and so on. To explore these various aspects, we will be primarily viewing films by Tawian based auteurs, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Edward Yang, and Tsai Ming-liang; references and viewings of films by auteurs from Hong Kong and China will serve to understand the substance of the term 'Chinese Auteurs.'
