CHTR 5850 - Documentary Writing and Film in China

A seminar exploring the role of the documentary impulse in modern Chinese writing and film. Beginning with reportage literature and foreign documentaries about China from the early 20th century, the course follows the development of documentary art forms in the People’s Republic of China (with some attention to Taiwan as well), culminating in the recent trend of independent documentary film making and its influence on narrative film.
