Author: Lin, Sitong
Issue Date: 2017-08-31
Abstract: This thesis is to be aimed at exploring how the heterogeneity of time is represented in some contemporary Chinese films, namely, Crosscurrent (Chang Jiang Tu, 2016) by the Chinese director Yang Chao (6th January 1974- ), Kaili Blues (Lu Bian Ye Can, 2015) by the Chinese director Bi Gan (4th June 1989-), and Stray Dogs (Jiao You, 2013) by the Taiwan-based director Tsai Ming-liang (27 October 1957-). The thesis will analyse how this respectively corresponds with each film’s theme, which regards either the personal or the social and national predicament related with the economic and social development, in order to explore the possible positive effects these films may have on the individual and societies by provoking the spectator’s imagination of time.
