Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Chinese Cinema Goes Global
As part of University of Liverpool’s Chinese Studies module "Projecting China: An Introduction to Chinese History and Cinema", Dr Leon Rocha presents a new film programme, The Cultural Politics of Chinese Cinema: From Wire-fu Fantasies to Historical Epics. Exploring propaganda, trauma and memory, and the globality of Chinese cinema, these three important films speak to different aspects of cultural politics in contemporary China.
The first film in this series, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), directed by Ang Lee, was perhaps the most well-known "wire-fu" or "wuxia" ("martial heroes") film to Western audiences, frequently labelled as a "counter-flow" that challenged the grip of Hollywood on the global film market.
This is part of the Public Programme for new exhibition How much of this is fiction.
