(p.1) Introduction
China's Encounter with Global Hollywood

Wendy Su

University Press of Kentucky

This book is fundamentally about global-local dynamics. It is the first systematic investigation of the contemporary encounter between mainland China and global Hollywood and the impact of this encounter on the modernization of China’s film industry. There are three major conflicts in the Chinese film industry: the conflict involving the Chinese state, Chinese film professionals, and Hollywood-represented global capital in their battle for the Chinese market; the conflict between the state censorship and artists’ freedom of expression, which is essential for the prosperity of China’s film industry; and the conflict between market and audience demands and filmmakers’ artistic pursuits. In terms of these three conflicts, the book aims to answer the questions of who wins and how this global-local interplay has shaped China’s course toward modernity.
