Ideas Roadshow’s film resources are primarily focused on Prof. Michael Berry’s reflections on China’s film industry: its past, present, and ongoing relationship with Hollywood. Michael Berry is Professor of Contemporary Chinese Cultural Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. Michael Berry’s areas of research include modern and contemporary Chinese literature, Chinese cinema, popular culture in modern China, and literary translation. Specific themes suggested for developing an extended essay centred around film studies may also be used as a conceptual starting point for the independent study.
