SUN YU AND THE EARLY AMERICANIZATION OF CHINESE CINEMA

Résumé

What I intend to do here is a preliminary analysis on how some of the code of Hollywood narrative cinema arrived in China, and how these codes were developed suit local standards. One of the most prominent movie makers of the golden age of Chinese cinema has consciously and admittedly introduced Hollywood techniques and styles, both in the production as in the reception of national cinema, via a lyric yet realist, popular yet informed, consistent yet variegated cinematographic style. I am referring here to pioneer director Sun Yu 孫瑜 (1900-1990). Through a textual analysis I'll try to demonstrate how Sun Yu relevantly contributed to the globalization of this language - or "Americanization" if we consider Hollywood a synonymous for "American", and Hollywood mode of production a transcultural enterprise made by a collage of expertise, as well as a vertical, assembly line-production process.
