Editorial Reviews

Timely and engaging, this is the first critical volume in English on the emergence and flourishing of the new documentary movement in China in the last two decades. A border-crossing effort by Chinese and Western scholars, joined by the leading independent documentarian Wu Wenguang, the informative and provocative writings here shed new light on the complex relationships between everyday life and media, public culture and social change in contemporary China.
