Abstract: D. W. Griffith made some thirty short films on Indian subjects during the Biograph years. Yet these mostly melodramatic treatments
have received little critical attention. Analyzing films such as "The Call of the Wild", "A Romance of the Western Hills",
and "The Massacre", this essay explains how the apparently sympathetic representation of the Native American still adheres
to the logic of white supremacy eventually enunciated in "The Birth of a Nation".
Abstract: This article compares the marketing and reception of British motion pictures in the U.S. market during the 1940s and 1990s.
In both eras, British filmmakers were captivated by the fantasy of conquering the American marketplace. They viewed their
movies as a fundamentally new kind of product that made it possible to challenge Hollywood on its own terrain.

Abstract: This article analyzes the construction of memory in Ann Hui's "Song of the Exile" as it intersects with issues of cultural
identity, national allegory, and women's autobiographies.
Abstract: Analysis of the star image of Ruan Lingyu, constructed in the early Chinese films of the 1930s and rearticulated in Stanley
Kwan's "Center Stage" (1992), demonstrates the contradictions between feminism and postmodernism. In addition, when placed
in the context of Hong Kong's return to China, the fragmented female image reveals a concern for the uncertain relations between
history and representation.
