Café Lumière: Presentation at Cal. State University, San Bernardino

(update: 7/20/2017: the lecture can be viewed via YouTube at this here.)

I am looking forward to presenting the following paper by invitation at California State University, San Bernardino on Thursday, April 20 2017 at 2pm:

"Sympathetic Views of Japan in Hou Hsiao-hsien's Café Lumière and Zhang Yimou's Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles"

In this presentation I intend to show how a close comparison of Café Lumière (Kafei shiguang, 2003) with Zhang Yimou’s Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles (Qian li zou dan qi, 2005) helps uncover “the ambivalent nature of Taiwanese postcoloniality” as Liao Ping-Hui has written, and additionally, how this “ambivalent nature” may shed light on current cross-strait relations.
