A Repetition Compulsion: Discontinuity Editing, Classical Chinese Aesthetics, and Hong Kong's Culture of Disappearance
Abstract:In 1972, Michelangelo Antonioni produced the documentary Chung Kuo for Italian television. While the filmmaker claimed to have carried out the project with nothing but affection and respect for his subject, the official response in the PRC was a denunciation of the film as an attack on the nation and an insult to its people.
