East West Encounters by Sylvie Blum-Reid

Book Description

"East-West Encounters: Franco-Asian Cinema and Literature" is the first book of its kind to examine Franco-Asian film and literary productions in the context of France's postcolonial history. It covers French film-makers' approaches to the Asian 'Other', as well as focusing on the works of Vietnamese and Cambodian directors living and working in France. The book thus examines this important contemporary example of cultural exchange and establishes a dialogue between producers and consumers of exoticised images. It features extensive studies of key texts such as "Emmanuelle," "Indochine," "The Scent of Green Papaya" and "Cyclo."
