Note "How do East Asian cultural heritages in shape film? How are these legacies being revived, or even re-created, by contemporary filmmakers? This collection examines the dynamic interactions between East Asian culture heritages - "traditional" elements including martial arts, music, landscape, aesthetics, stage performances, and legends - and cinemas in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea"--Provided by publisher
