The 5th Generation filmmakers and their early works: Chinese Cinema from 1980s to mid-1990s

The 5th generation of Chinese filmmakers looms large in Chinese film history, including such luminaries as Chen Kaige and Zhang Yimou. The talk looks at how this generation’s formative years, shared historical background and training influenced the directors’ choice of subject matter and the artistic quality of their work. It will also look at why their films attracted so much international attention at a time when Chinese cinema was relatively unknown, and why their subsequent work has lost much of the former vigor and flavor seen in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Venue: China Culture Center, Chaoyang District, Beijing, China.
