    Beschreibung "Independent documentary films in contemporary China articulate a vision of Chinese politics and society that deviates from official state discourse. This thesis explores how China‟s New Documentary Movement (NDM) – a spontaneous, independent phenomenon in Chinese cinema – serves as an important arena to study state and society struggles in the aftermath of the post-Mao reforms. This study first explores the politicalization of Chinese national cinema to demonstrate how the degree of control exerted over filmmaking and the documentary genre functions as a useful indicator of Chinese state-society relations. Focusing on the contentious issue of land disputes and rural rightful resistance in two documentaries – Feng Yan‟s Bing Ai as well as Zhang Ke and Dong Yu‟s Where is the Way – it contrasts the lived reality of displaced peasants to the official rhetoric disseminated in the state media. Also discussed is the state‟s response to the NDM and its implications for greater societal autonomy in contemporary China." (Information des Anbieters)
