How Japan Was Different from the West and above Asia before Globalization

(p.25) Chapter Two Internationalization of Japanese Cinema
Japanese Cinema Goes Global

Yoshiharu Tezuka

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter investigates Japan's interactions with the West (mostly America) from 1945 to the 1970s. Case studies of filmmakers help document how the American Occupation and postwar reconstruction and remodernization renewed and inscribed in Japan its own otherness against the West on one hand and its superiority complex in relation to its Asian neighbours on the other. Early transnational efforts including the creation of the FPA are examined to show the self-Orientalist strategies of Japanese filmmakers of the time, and to highlight the golden age of Hong Kong-Japanese cinematic collaboration, as well as the emergence of resistance cosmopolitanism.
