Young Rebels in Contemporary Chinese Cinema

Hong Kong University Press

This book examines the relationship between changes in politics and film from the 1950s to the present, focusing on the altered cinematic portrayal of young adults from the late 1980s. It examines films that have taken young rebels as central characters and investigates how a “Chinese youth culture” has been constructed, represented, and interpreted. While focusing in particular on 1980s “young-rebel films”, it also examines some earlier and later periods of Chinese film to provide comparative perspectives.

Keywords:   politics, film, young adults, young rebels, youth culture, young-rebel films
