About this book

The rise of independent documentary film production is the most radical development in the contemporary Chinese mediascape. This book is a sustained examination of Chinese independent documentary in relation to one of its central principles: xianchang, or being 'on the scene'.

Reviews

'Luke Robinson's Independent Chinese Documentary is the first monograph in English on this crucial cultural movement. Robinson sustains a beautifully clear argument for spontaneity and contingency as the key elements that make independent documentary the cultural response to China's shift from socialist planning to citizen initiatives. Rigorously researched, it covers the entire twenty years of independent Chinese documentary in sophisticated yet lucid detail.' - Chris Berry, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK
