(Un-)Folding hollywood and new Chinese subjectivity through PRC’s minority national films in the 1950s and 1960s

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Perhaps the cinematic world should be envisioned as an inseparable, folded totality in which any visible and discernible distinction is only a local operation. The so-called world of enclosures is actually never closed, and the seemingly distinct is not necessarily separated. Chinese socialist cinema of the 1950s to 1960s was never anti-American as generally presumed. Communist China’s act of expelling Hollywood movies at the beginning of the Korean War (1950-53) was not necessarily a rupture or a cut in the continuity of fi lmic relationship, but rather an infl ection point, a zigzag, or a sinuous fold.
