About this book

Zeng examines the cultural/historical implications of exile through the detailed analysis of film language and theoretical exploration.

Hong Zeng is an assistant professor of Chinese language, literature, and film at Carleton College.

Reviews

"Hong Zeng presents a much-needed theoretical exploration of Chinese-language film. The theory of exile provides a shared platform to discuss not only a variety of otherwise non-comparable Chinese-language films but also some critical aspects of Chinese films that had been insufficiently studied." - Jie Zhang, assistant professor, Chinese Language, Literature and Cinema , Trinity College
