This book looks closely at films by the most renowned directors of contemporary Chinese art cinema: Hou Hsiao-hsien, Tsai Ming-liang and Wong Kar-wai. It argues that these directors have collectively authored a distinct cinema of time across the realms of national and transnational film culture.

From the Inside Flap:

Jean Ma offers an innovative study of three provocative Chinese directors: Wong Karwai, Hou Hsiao-hsien, and Tsai Ming-liang, whose highly stylized and nonlinear configurations of time have brought new global respect for Chinese cinema. Amplifying motifs of loss, nostalgia, haunting, and ephemeral poetics, they each insist on the significance of being out of time, not merely out of place, as a condition of global modernity and transnational cultures of memory.

About the Author:

Jean Ma is assistant professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University, where she teaches in the Film and Media Studies Program.
