"Made in China: Cinematic Aesthetics and the Disappearing Chinese Factory"

10/10/2013 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Although manufacturing in China is big business, the factory as spatial organization seems to be disappearing around the world; but not in the movies. Join Professor Hai Ren as we discuss three cinematic engagements with the Chinese factory: ethical cinema with the factory as part of a ritualized process of a community; representational cinema that shows the factory where workers become disciplined and docile; and the cinema of aesthetics, which engages the factory as a place where temporal and intellectual equalities become possible.

This event is presented by the UA College of Humanities, East Asian Studies.
