Polylocality in Contemporary Chinese Cinema

Cinema, Space, and Polylocality
In Cinema, Space, and Polylocality in a Globalizing China, prominent China film scholar Yingjin Zhang proposes “polylocality” as a new conceptual framework for investigating the shifting spaces of contemporary Chinese cinema in the age of globalization. Questioning the national cinema paradigm, Zhang calls for comparative studies of underdeveloped areas beyond the imperative of transnationalism.

This book is the inaugural volume in the Critical Interventions series.
