This chapter introduces the situation of Chinese cinema on the eve of the Tian'anmen Incident in 1989. This period was characterized by the emergence of “entertainment films,” early attempts at industry reform, and the first film-rating system designed to regulate film content through legislation. In the discussion, attention is centered on the historical background and implementation and perpetuation of the Communist art policy, which censored the political and ideological rectitude of films.

Keywords:   Chinese cinema, Tian'anmen Incident, entertainment films, industry reform, film-rating system, Communist art policy
