Description: In the Heat of the SunandDevils on the Doorstepare two of the finest and most honored Chinese films ever made.Body in Questionis the first book to thoroughly examine these groundbreaking works and one of the first books in English to study individual Chinese films in depth. These two award-winning films by renowned director-actor Jiang Wen and cinematographer Gu Changwei are unsurpassed in China for their exquisite attention to realistic detail, their stylistic range, their emotional breadth, and their razor-like commentary on contemporary China. In scenes that range from hilarious to horrific, China's ruling elite and its complicated relationship with Japan are subjected to the filmmakers' ironic treatment and profound concern with social justice.In the Heat of the Sunhas become unavailable, andDevils on the Doorstephas been suppressed by the Chinese government. Jerome Silbergeld gives these two important films careful and extended study inBody in Question. He uses cinema and photography, political history, anthropology and philosophy, Chinese rhetorical traditions, and concepts of justice to explore the films' visual complexity and intellectual force, providing a unique look at the artistry and pressing concerns of Chinese cinema today. An accompanying DVD includes major clips from both films. Body in Questionwill be of interest to specialists in Chinese art and culture, and anyone interested in film, Chinese politics, and Asian culture.
