New Chinese Cinema: Challenging Representationsexamines the "search for roots" films that emerged from China in the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution. Sheila Cornelius contextualizes the films of the so-called Fifth Generation directors who came to prominence in the 1980s and 1990s, such as Chen Kaige, Zhang Yimou, and Tian Zhuangzhuan. Including close analysis of such pivotal films as Farewell My Concubine(winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes), Raise the Red Lantern,and The Blue Kite,the book also examines the rise of contemporary Sixth Generation underground directors whose themes embrace the disaffection of urban youth.
