Highlights from dGenerate Presentation at Swarthmore
dGenerate's Kevin B. Lee discusses Chinese cinema to students at Swarthmore College
On March 30, 2010, dGenerate Films’ Kevin B. Lee gave a talk to students and faculty at Swarthmore College. The presentation, entitled “From the Fifth Generation to the dGeneration,” gave an introduction to the wave of digital filmmaking currently prevalent in China, and how it emerged as a response to the Fifth and Sixth Generations of Chinese filmmakers. The talk discussed the films within social, historical, cultural and political contexts and introduced several representative films and directors. Lee also touched on issues such as audience responses both at home and abroad, financing and distribution, and censorship.
The talk was followed by a screening of Fujian Blue by Robin Weng. Highlights of the presentation can be viewed in the video below.
