The “Conclusion” considers the interpretations offered in the previous individual chapters as a whole, intertwining those readings in order to propose a way of conceiving future prospects for Chinese film. The process of adopting, adapting, updating, or subverting technologies, tactics, genres, and so on reveals the modes of film’s possible development. Further, the affects generated by viewing films spur future creative acts. And by analogy, we the audience out in the real world are also subject to these affective flows and may engage them, if we so choose, to create new ways of being in the world for ourselves.
