Rising Sun and Divided Land

(p.1) Introduction
Rising Sun, Divided Land

Kate E. Taylor-Jones

Columbia University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of how East Asian cinema emerged on the international stage towards the end of the twentieth century. It then sets out the book's purpose, namely to draw attention to the relevant debates around and analyses of East Asian directors and their work. The book discusses the wider questions of gender, history, nationalism, economics, artistic movements, and war together with evaluation of the interplay between the global and the local, national and international. The aim is not an analysis based on socio-history but an interdisciplinary one that will see the directors and their works as integrally involved in the wider cultural debates that are taking place on a regional, national, and international scale.

Keywords:   East Asian cinema, film directors, films, gender, history, nationalism, economics, artistic movements, war
