The Chinese State, Hollywood, and Postsocialist Modernity

The Chinese State, Hollywood, and Postsocialist Modernity

(p.163) Conclusion The Chinese State, Hollywood, and Postsocialist Modernity
China's Encounter with Global Hollywood

Wendy Su

University Press of Kentucky

Analyzing the consequences of the China-Hollywood encounter, this concluding chapter argues that market and global forces have pushed the state to transform from an ossified, omnipresent ruler to a manager, negotiator, and regulator. Both the market and global capital empower the state. Hollywood and transnational capital represent a double-edged sword, however, that can have both positive and negative impacts on national modernization projects. The author concludes that a complicated relationship exists among the state, transnational capital, and the domestic film industry. The East-West encounter, as manifested in the China-Hollywood engagement, has created an uneven modernity in China. This particular postsocialist modernity currently works to maintain the power of the Chinese state, but it may nourish new elements and create new space for new alternatives.

Keywords:   Chinese state, transnational captial, Hollywood, postsocialist modernity, alternative modernities
