The Washington Times – Chinese film ‘Aftershock’ shakes tradition

Joseph Tse-Hei Lee, a history professor with Pace University, said the Chinese government has been encouraging its industries to expand in recent years to “globalize their own culture.”

“The government wants to expand its cultural soft power,” said Mr. Lee, though he suggested that this could backfire.

Aftershock – a new Chinese film which revolves around the aftermath of the 1976 Tangshan earthquake — is being shown in multiplex theaters across the country as part of AMC’s new deal to show Chinese films to American audiences outside the art house circuit.

But can this business strategy be successful?

For perspective on Chinese-American culture, Film Critic Christian Toto interviewed Pace History Professor Joseph Lee, asking:

• Are mainstream audiences open to Chinese film imports?
• Or will this be targeted solely at cities with large Chinese-American populations?
• Wouldn’t such a film be a better fit at art house theaters?
