Description - General History of Chinese Film II: 1949-1976 by Ding Yaping

Since 1949, Chinese film has been greatly influenced by a variety of historical, cultural, and political events in the history of the People's Republic of China. This volume explores the development of Chinese film from 1949 to 1976.

This volume restores Chinese film to its original historical form and assesses its complex relationship with society, politics, culture, and art in the Maoist period. The 17-year films, Cultural Revolution-era films, the influence of model operas, and the documentary newsreels of Xinwen Jianbao are discussed. Combining a macro-perspective with a micro-perspective, the author analyzes the special characteristics of Chinese film in this period and showcases the inheritance and differences between earlier Chinese film and Chinese film in the newly founded the People's Republic of China.

The book will be essential reading for scholars and students in film studies, Chinese studies, cultural studies, and media studies, helping readers develop a comprehensive understanding of Chinese film.
