Summer Program in Chinese Film 2008 [Feb. 24th, 2008|12:21 pm]
Chinese Movies

Relatively short notice on this one, but this program seems to have built up good momentum. If you're unable to apply this year, you may want to keep it in mind for future summers.

March 8 deadline approaching!

The Summer Program in Chinese Film History and Criticism will take place at the Beijing Film Academy. The program is especially well suited for upper-level undergraduates who intend to continue their studies in Chinese cinema, and for graduate students and professors who plan to teach courses involving films.

The Summer Program in Chinese Film History and Criticism will be hosted for the third consecutive year at the Beijing Film Academy on June 30 - July 27, 2008. Students worldwide are welcome to the program, administered through the University of Washington. 12 quarter credits are transferable to other institutions. No knowledge of Chinese is required.

The courses will be taught by professors from outside Asia (including Chris Berry and Yomi Braester) and a variety of faculty from the Beijing Film Academy. The program also includes meetings with filmmakers. The program cost (including tuition and lodging) is $3,200 + registration fee. The application deadline is March 8. Eearly application is encouraged.

The curriculum includes the following courses:
* Independent Chinese cinema
* Chinese Cinema and the Nation
* Beijing Prepares for the Olympics in Film and Media
* Chinese New Media
* Gender in Chinese cinema
* Film Theory: A Comparative Look

Please visit our web site at http://faculty.washington.edu/yomi/bfa for further details on curriculum and application procedures. Questions should be addressed to the program director, Yomi Braester, by email: yomi@u.washington.edu.

Jet Li's Fearless Soundtrack Question [Jul. 2nd, 2007|11:08 pm]
Chinese Movies
I had a question about the soundtrack to Jet Li's Fearless. I just bought it used and want to make sure I didn't get an odd copy somehow.

Do the fight tracks ("Tainjin Fight," for instance), fade out oddly in strange parts of the track? There are many tracks on this CD that abruptly fade out and become silent for several seconds before they fade back up. I tried comparing with the movie to see if that was just how the scenes went musically, but I don't think it is.

Also, the flute solo tracks are decidedly louder than anything else, especially anything with drums. It almost sounds like someone was at the volume controls as the music was played and messed around sloppily in real time.

Is this how the soundtrack actually is officially? I just want to make sure I am not missing out on the music.

If anyone knows anything, please let me know. Thanks.

R.I.P., Edward Yang [Jul. 1st, 2007|01:45 pm]
Chinese Movies

Taiwanese director Edward Yang dies at 59

I thought Yi Yi (2000) was so amazing when I first saw it, I took it home to my parents and watched all 173 minutes of it again the very next day. Sadly, I've had difficulty locating most of his other films. I heard there were copyright issues with most of them, except for The Terrorizers (1986), which I do have a copy of and which Frederic Jameson praised in print. Even from his brief segment in In Our Time (1982), it was evident that his talent, style, and the very register of his film language were unique. He will be missed.
