Just got this through the Chinese Cinema Digest Newsletter, looks very interesting, even though I have bot yet read myself: the publication of Tang Xiaobing‘s essay "Why Should 2009 Make a Difference? Reflections on a Chinese Blockbuster."

The paper starts with a "The Founding of the Republic" and introduces a larger question of how to regard and rethink contemporary Chinese culture. The author argues for the recognition of the Chinese cultural production as a vibrant and complex ecology that we cannot afford to reduce or ignore.  It is not just a question of knowledge or appreciation, but also has to do with different memories and visions of history, which then raises further questions about our ability or willingness to accept them as such.
