In connection with Anthology Film Archives’ online film series, “5 FILMS BY HSIN CHI”, which will be streaming for free from November 17-30, we invited three scholars to speak about Hsin’s work and to provide context regarding the Taiwanese-language films that were produced between 1955-81.
The speakers include:
Chun-Chi WANG is a specialist in film and television critical theory. She is currently the Executive Director of the Taiwan Film and Audiovisual Institute, and the Chair Woman of Taiwan Women’s Film Association, the organizer for the Women Make Waves Film Festival in Taiwan. She received her PhD degree from the University of Southern California, and her current research areas include Taiwanese-language cinema, media representations of gender and sexuality, and film and social practice.
Chih-Heng SU is a former researcher at the Taiwan Film Institute, the author of “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Taiwan: The Life And Death Of Taiwanese Hokkien Cinema”, and a specialist on Taiwanese-Language Cinema.
Wan-Jui WANG is Professor of Taiwanese Literature & Creative Innovation at National Chung Cheng University, where he is conducting research into Taiwan New Cinema, Taiwanese film history, and transnational Chinese cinemas.
