Teaching Evans Chan’s Bauhinia

(p.121) Chapter Nine Global Aches
Postcolonialism, Diaspora, and Alternative Histories

Stacilee Ford

Hong Kong University Press

Despite its relatively short fifty-minute length, Bauhinia offers its audience Evans Chan’s seamless essay-like integration of reality and fiction, artistic blend of music and camerawork. Bauhinia is a thoughtful and teachable exploration of complex and combustible topics such as the gender politics of relationships in diaspora, China’s One Child Policy, and the impact of 9/11 in the US and beyond. This chapter is an analysis of transnationality in Bauhinia and a study of its reception in the classroom.

Keywords:   9/11, post 9/11 society, gender, melodrama, trauma, human identity, audience reception
